There are LOTS of 6m repeaters on 52-54 MHz.

2m and 440 MHz are the most active FM bands.

220 Mhz and 1200 MHz is amateur in only a small part of the world so there is less equipment made for those, but they are active.

Here's the on-line lists of FM systems in just one area: Southern California Repeater Lists

Semi-retired electronics / computer / network / 2-way-radio / amateur radio... (WA6ILQ)
1985 Fleetwood 32' Southwind (Chev P30/454), dubbed "Lazarus" by friends... I resurrected it from the dead...

I too am just retired and the wifey and I plan on doing some cross country RVing! I have a Yaesu FTM400XDR installed and will monitor 146.520 all the time as well as the other kind of radio the truckers use.
