Re: Six meter calling freq. 50.260
- I agree with you Dale, same as 144.140 for 2m MS.
Some time I make the mistake to call on 140 and not spliting freq I agree but next time i'll do the best as I can to make it the best way to make QSO.

When one uses 260 to make contacts, it prevents others within normal tropo range from making random QSOs by either listening or calling...as the calling frequency is in use.
