6 Meters (50 Mhz through 54 Mhz)

6 meters is a popular amateur radio band. The mix of VHF and HF propagation characteristics has led to 6 Meters being called the "magic band" as communication can lead to great distances.

The frequency allocations vary by country. In the United States, and Canada, it ranges from 50 to 54 MHz. In United Kingdom, it ranges from 50 to 52 MHz, with some limitations at some frequencies. In some countries, the frequency range is used for television transmissions or local military uses.

In the northern hemisphere, 6 Meter activity is most common from May through August when sporadic E propagation becomes a regular occurrence. In the southern hemisphere, sporadic E propagation is most common from November through February.


Band Charts are for general information, please check your local band plan for operating privlages. For example; ARRL Band Plan or RSGB Band Plan.
