Your results vary, depending on equipment used, antenna height and any reflective surface close by.
Red means these this frequency range is dangerous for your radio and the antenna will be very inefficient (3.0+)!
Orange means questionable for radio and antenna will be inefficient (2.6-2.9).
Yellow should be OK for your radio, but antenna could do better (2.1-2.5).
Lighter Green is fine for your radio, but antenna could do better (1.6-1.9).
Darker Green is great for radio and antenna (1.0-1.5).

Shingletown Emergency Radio (SER) Go HERE

The Shingletown Emergency Radio Plan is a free service. There is no cost
to participate if you have compatible radio equipment. Of course, if you
don’t have compatible radio equipment you need to purchase it. We do
not sell the equipment or make money from the sale of it. We do make
suggestions and will program any compatible radios free of charge.
What we offer is communications and hopefully peace of mind
in case of an emergency and/or complete communication failure.
We do it for our families and we can include you too.
It is neighbors helping neighbors.
