Notes about Utah 70-cm (UHF) simplex frequencies:

Only the following UHF Simplex (70 cm) frequencies may be used in Utah: 446.000 (National Calling Frequency), 446.500, 447.800, 447.825 and 447.850 are used for 70 cm simplex operation in Utah, (447.850 is to be used only along the Wasatch Front.)  Note that much of the UHF signal is lost in the atmosphere on these frequencies, therefore for dependable communication in the 70 cm Band use of these frequencies should be considered as most usable for short range and nearly line of sight.
