We have about 1,400 repeaters throughout the country — hundreds of 70cm (430MHz) and 23cm (1200MHz), as well as about one hundred 13cm (2400MHz), eight 5cm (5600MHz) and five 3cm (10.1GHz).
We have NO other bands ones.
Recently, about 150 digital — aka D-STAR — repeaters are included on 70cm and 23cm.
(cf. JP1YEX — 434.44MHz in/439.44MHz out — is the first trial repeater for digital communications in our past May 6, 1986 - May 6, 1988.)
