Amateur (Ham) Radio Frequency Table

This information is presented for people that are NOT hams, or amateur radio operators, that want to know something about the frequencies that hams are legally allowed to use. Hams are required to know this in order to get an amateur license, or ticket as a license is called, to operate a transmitter. You may also gain other information by looking at our Frequency Wavelength Calculator, our Citizens Band Radio (CB) Frequency Table, our Family Radio (FRS) Frequency Table, our General Device Frequency Information, our Marine VHF Band Radio Frequency Table, our 49 Mhz Cordless Phone Frequency Table, our 900 Mhz Cordless Phone Frequency Information, our Analog Cellular Phone Frequency Table, our Cellular, PCS, GSM, and Japanese Digital Cellular Frequencies Table, and our US And International Tables Of Frequency Allocations.
