Negative offset.I can later when I get home. Try 146.610, its the repeater on Cesar's Head that everyone in the area uses.
I can barely hit it with my HT from my house. But you may have a better view.And here I thought I was good adding a mic to my handheld. I already have the mobile plan in my head, just haven't pulled the trigger.
Name a time and I will try to listen in. I doubt I can hit it from here with only 5w.
