Texas has several VHF/UHF repeater network systems which cover most of the state. So when you use your handheld VHF/UHF radio and can RX/TX with one repeater, it is linked to all the other repeaters in the network. So you can communicate with anyone within 20-50 miles of all the other repeaters. |
One here is called the Saltgrass Network. Austin's repeater frequency is 442.450 MHz. I can hear people from Houston and the Gulf Coast chattering on it almost all day long. It covers about 20 Texas coastal counties and a couple of Louisiana parishes.
I know there are other repeater networks in other parts of the country too. VHF and UHF handhelds are much easier to get up and running right out of the box.
