    I have a feeling you will not find a 2M repeater in this country.

    We've got one in Puerto Plata so I would think SD would have one. Maybe no hams on the board.

    Robert's wrong this time. This is old info. but may still work
    SD 146.94 - HI8MIF
    SD 147.12 + HI8TJL
    La Vega 146.70 - HI8TJL
    146.73 - HI8WR
    146.85 -
    Where will be more, do a search "amateur radio Dominicam Republic"
    You will require a DR issued call to operate, if Canadian check RAC site for info.
    Lots of hams in DR, Puerto Plata, Santiago, SD, 2 meter operation& equipment same as North America
    PM me if I can help

    I don't know diddly about ham radio except to say that it was the only means of communication to the outside world for us stranded Americans during the 1965 revolution.

    We would trek over to a local Doctor's house in San Francisco de Macorís, who had a ham shack constructed on a 3rd story rooftop on his house. He would eventually contact a US based ham operator who would complete a phone patch to our families.

    Those ham operators are the best!

    I double that, Swede. I got married at the end of 65 and most of the communication was via ham radio here in Santiago. HI3AV (?)
    Great guy. Don't know much about it but I could do the basics back then.
    I think that ham is still alive and well but like buggy whips, it is a declining business. Internet is killing it..Like who uses mail anymore..My friend had walls covered with cards from all over the world...God rest your soul Abraham....

    In my "list of things to bring" for my 4 weeks in DR in October I excluded the 2m handy talkie. I guess I was presumptious in assuming that I wouldn't find much ham activity out there. I guess I'll toss it in the pile just in case ;-)

    OK to monitor BUT you need local DR licence to transmit. You have lots of time to apply. Check RAC if Canadian or ARRL web site if American for details on application.
