Here in Colorado 222 MHz activity is light, but I often get on the air with an
FM rig and make
a number of contacts on that band. Most people are happy to have the Qs and
don't mind flipping
over to FM. Sometimes there is a bit of a pile up on 223.5 MHz.
Using a horizontally polarized antenna is a good idea to avoid polarization loss
since most of
the SSB stations are horizontal.
