What amateur band are you using if you are transmitting on 223.50 MHz?
1.25 meter band

Exposition

A person could either memorize that the 1.25 meter band runs from 219 to 220 then again from 222 to 225, or a person could convert the frequency to a wavelength and pick the closest answer.

$ \lambda=\frac{c}{v} $ or $ \text{wavelength}=\frac{\text{speed of light}}{\text{frequency}} $
$ \lambda=\frac{3*10^8}{223.5 MHz} $
$ \lambda=\frac{300,000,000}{223,500,000} $
$ \lambda=1.34 $

The 1.25 meter band is the closest given answer.
