I've had my ticket for a couple of years, but I haven't used the radio much, mainly for communication between vehicles on group runs.

This is probably a dumb question, but what is the advantage of the 1.25M band? And would you need to switch antennas to use it?

I've been licensed for 9 years now and 220 is pretty dead around me. Some places it's more active but from what I can find, it's performance is very similar to 2m so there's not much advantage to having capability for a vacant band for me.

You'll have to check your area and see what's going on there.

Also, get at least mildly involved in your local club. There's lots to learn and lots of fun to have on the bands. I really enjoy participating in contests and Field Day with my club.

I picked up the BTech version. I like it, but there's not much going on in 220 here, either.
I replaced the antenna with a Nagoya 320a, much better than the stock one.
