146.52 monitoring

The IHRAS is promoting the “Active Monitoring” of 146.520 simplex.
How many times have you driven down the road and seen another ham that you wanted to have a short QSO with?
How many times do you recall stories of the “good old days” when you could regularly make contacts on simplex?
Well let’s bring the good old days back. Please monitor 146.520 simplex while mobile. For this effort to work we will also have to use 146.520 simplex.
“If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there to hear it...”
You get the idea... We have to use simplex in order to make monitoring simplex worth while. This means throwing out your call sign once in a while going down the road.
