## 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?

- or

- v=50 MHz
- 6 meters is 50 MHz.

## UnitsEdit

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

## ShortcutEdit

**Wavelength in meters equals 300 divided by frequency in megahertz.****Frequency in megahertz equals 300 divided by wavelength in meters.**

This expresses the speed of light as 300x10^6, and since megahertz is "millions of hertz" and one million is 1x10^6, we can ignore the scientific notation. Given a 6 meter band, what's the frequency of the band?

- v=50 MHz
- 6 meters is 50 MHz.
