23 cm is filling up fast with allocations to other services, particularly Radars and Radio Navigation Satellite systems.
We can use this band for satellite communications, communications to, and between, manned spacecraft, and moonbounce communications, just to name a few. Line of site land based communications is easy, but beyond the horizon communications is a challenge, and there is lots of room for experimentation.
Some Canadian and US amateurs are using 1240 MHz. The ARRL have a data base of activity on the VHF, UHF, and Microwave bands on their web site. Or you can visit VE6NTT's Western Canadian Weak Signal Registry
In the meantime, here are a few sites on the internet where you can see what others are doing, and where you can look for components and equipment.
