30. The 2-meter repeater coverage here in the NC mountains is superb!
Working 2-meters is almost like working HF. I have an easy 2-meter range of 300 miles in most directions. We have just bought a small condo in Greenville,SC. The balcony looks at the antenna farm on Paris Mountain. I look at Paris Mountain (signal-wise) from my mountain house near Rosman. My wife needs a Technician license. Get my drift?
