Will be visiting West Virginia in September and October 2018 and have read nothing about any restrictions on using Amateur "ham" Radio in the VHF range in or near the NRQZ. Would someone enlighten me on what - if any - restrictions are placed on VHF (144.0 - 148.0 MHz) radio power in that zone. [My mobile radio can very easily be adjusted from 5 watts up to 65 watts of transmitting power and would most likely be used for emergency communications due to the lack of cell phone coverage.]

It depends on where you're going. Typically no, they're not going to care, CB radios are permitted. However, if you're driving through the middle of Green Bank, you may get pulled over. There are enforcement trucks that can and will track down rogue frequencies. If you're within 10 miles of Green Bank or Sugar Grove, I'd turn it off if for nothing else than courtesy to the operators.

Thread moved from the Huntington sub-forum to the main West Virginia forum since the Quiet Zone is nowhere remotely close to Huntington.
