Today I've had some spare time and was brainstorming ideas for a fun project. My idea was (if others are interested) to have a launch event of a high altitude balloon equipped with a PMR446 repeater (preferably duplex using the new to be added 16 channels, but simplex could work) a good chunk of British 446ers could have a go with UHF yagis and use it much like a satellite, but better: it's license free! :thumbs: but will only be up for a few hours) if others are interested, let me know. I might take a few months and get something together!

What about using a parrot repeater on 446?

I did consider using a parrot simplex system on 446 and it would definitely work! I'm just not a huge fan of having to wait twice as long as normal to hear the message. But if people keep QSOs short like on a satellite it shouldn't be a problem. It's all down to effectiveness and practicality.

I think it could only be a parrot repeater on 446,
If your planning for a full repeater I think you will find the band plan to small to accommodate the the space needed for normal operation.

That all said I am interested in what plans you have so far Jacob?
