435.123 to 435.043 MHz 145.866 to 145.946 MHz 10 watts max 80 kHz about 100 Watts

Amateur Radio situations. (For information on the application of AREES/Data to Amateur Radio public service, see QST, December 1990, page 75.) The data base runs on an IBM PC or compatible and requires a TNC with WA8DED firmware and/or DRSI PC*PA packet adapters (up to a mix of 4 TNCs or PC*PAs). User stations can use any type of terminal or computer and TNC. if you have an earlier version, the new features are primarily fixes of the TNC busy and the repeating transmitted packet errors.
