What is the 2-Meter Amateur Radio band anyway?
According to Wikipedia, "The 2 meter amateur radio band is a portion of the VHF (very high frequency) Spectrum, comprising of frequencies stretching from 144.000 MHz to 148.000 MHz." These communications are generally FM or frequency modulated transmissions.
Because it is local and reliable, and because the licensing requirements to transmit on the 2-meter band are easy to meet in the United States and many other countries, this band is the most popular Amateur Radio band in the United States. The 2-meter band is often the band on which Ham radio operators make their first contacts.
Optima batteries provide more usable power, unequaled vibration resistance, and the cranking power needed to start all of today's largest boat engines. Compared to conventional batteries, they have up to two times the life and 15 times more vibration resistance. A low self-discharge rate means that when stored with a full charge, they can sit for a year and still start your boat. They also have a higher reserve capacity over time, are non-spillable, maintenance-free and can be charged in as little as one hour. D34M fits in a Group 24 battery box and D31M fits in a Group 27 battery box.
