I've been wondering,in certain bands,such as the 2 meter band,the band plan is from 144.000 MHz to 148.000 MHz,my question is,what are the the Frequencies above 148 MHz and below 144 MHz used for then within the 2 meter band allocation?Such as 136 MHz-143.900 MHz and 148 MHz-175 MHz

Generally the 136 to 143.900 MHz has been assigned to the U.S. Military for their communications, 143.9000 to 144.000 MHz is used for the Civil Air Patrol and 148.000 to 148.100 MHz is used for the Civil Air Patrol for their Repeaters & Simplex operations, above 148.100 up to 175 MHz is set aside as Commercial Business Band that Public Safety, Taxi Cabs, Hospital Radio Paging, the U.S. National Park Service, NOAA Weather, VHF marine communications, Several U.S. Federal Government Agencies, small Businesses i.e. Gas Stations / Towing Services and most of these radio channels are going to the newer Digital modes for better RF coverage and narrow band operation.

Your question wasn't quite clear. Maybe this is the answer you're looking for? The Amateur band (in the US) is 144 - 148 MHz. If you have a radio that tunes below or above this band, you can listen, but you are not allowed to transmit.
