Is 438.975 for So Cal UHF APRS documented somewhere? I've done web searches several times over the past few years and have never found a UHF freq for So Cal.

This question gets asked every few years.  Some areas do have recognized UHF frequencies for APRS (So. Cal is 438.975 for example).  The problem is, the UHF band plan varies widely in different parts of the country, and efforts to standardize have always run into road blocks because of local band plan incompatibilities.

A question came to mind today to a couple of us on the way to work...  Why hasn't aprs

standardized on UHF?  Being on the uhf bands would resolve many of the issues for mobile

installations (ie de-sense to other 2m radios, car stereos, etc)...  True the coverage

wouldn't be quite as long distanced, but the uhf bands seem to be a lot less used, and

commercial uhf hardware is available cheaply and in abundance which could be easily

modified for this sort of use...
