1. The Minnesota 2 meter band plan is based on the ARRL band plan in the repeater directory.

2. 144 - 145 Mhz FM channels are in 20 Khz steps; 146 - 148 Mhz FM channels are in 15 Khz steps.

3. Digital operations on simplex frequencies on this are not coordinated by any party in the State of Minnesota. Data speeds cannot be wider than a 20 Khz in the 144 - 145 Mhz range and 15 Khz in the 146 - 148 Mhz range. Maximum rate is 19.2K Baud.
