    Nice Chart....

    Also note: In the 60 Meter Band, Alaskan Amateur Operators can use the Alaska Emergency Frequency of 5167.5 Khz... and contact any Alaska Public, Alaska Private, Marine or Aircraft Station inside the Territorial Boundaries of the State.

    A ham myself. Used to maintain two way (mostly UHF, some VHF) radios at a large mining operation. Not very active in the HAM world but would eventually like to get into 80 - 40 meter stuff. It would be an advantage in a SHTF scenario to be able to know what's going on and communicate to the outside world from the bugout / hide.

    Ok will do. In the meantime, we'll probably run into each other right here.
