The 6 meter band is also the 50 MHz band. 50.0 to 50.1 is a CW only portion, while 50.1 to 54.0 is for RTTY/data, and phone/image. The whole band is usable by those with the following amateur licenses: Technician, Advanced, General, Extra. The 6 meter band is the band best suited to communicating via meteor scatter.

## Wavelength and Frequency conversionEdit

λ = c/ν

• λ (lambda) is the wavelength
• c is the speed of light
• v is the frequency

### ExampleEdit

6 meters is what frequency?

$\lambda=\frac{c}{v}$ or $\text{wavelength}=\frac{\text{speed of light}}{\text{frequency}}$
$\lambda*v=c$
$v=\frac{c}{\lambda}$
$v=\frac{3*10^8}{6}$
$v=\frac{300,000,000}{6}$
$v=50,000,000$
v=50 MHz
6 meters is 50 MHz.

Note that c is meters/second, that λ is meters, and v (nominally expressed in megahertz, or millions of hertz) is simply "/second".
