Press the 2.4 kHz bandwidth button while in the AM mode. That will disable the 2.4 kHz filter and give you a better frequency response.

You will have 6 meter and 1 1/4 meter in addition to the 2 meter and 70 centimeter Amateur Bands. The advantage is having the extra bands, the disadvantage is a four band transceiver will cost more. The extra cost may not be justified if your primary purpose is emergency work and there is no emergency coordination in you area on those bands.

I would look in the ARRL Repeater Directory to see how many 6 and 1 1/4 meter repeaters are in your area to start with.

We have just hired a new Contest Branch Manager, who will be getting things back on track shortly. Prior to this point, the Contest Branch was being covered by other staff members, who did their best to keep up while also doing their primary job. Thank you for your patience.

You are always welcome to call ARRL Headquarters and ask for the Contest Branch.
