Why is it called the 2-meter band?
The term 2 Meters commonly refers to a frequency band assigned for Amateur Radio use. It means that the radio waves transmitted at 144 million times per second (MHz) are 2 meters in length. See Wavelength for more information. Frequencies in and near this range are also referred to as VHF-High Band.
Are CB radios still used 2020?
The CB radio service was created in 1945 by the FCC, which designated a portion of the radio spectrum to be used by average citizens for the purposes of personal communication.
