quad verses dual band radios N8MTT 23 hours, 46 minutes ago
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.

Also, on another W8JI related topic regarding the 30L1, the AC power cord and transformer have wiring issues that are potentially dangerous. Collins made some serious errors wiring the power transformer. For safety sake, please read the information on the following link to make sure your 30L1 isn't wired in a dangerous manner:
