8 METERS BAND TRANSVERTERS

The 8-meter band (40 MHz) is the lowest portion of the very high frequency (VHF) radio spectrum allocated to amateur radio use.

The 8-meter band shares many characteristics with the neighboring 6-meter band. However, as it is somewhat lower in frequency it does display the better propagation mechanisms via the F2 ionospheric layer normally seen at high frequency (HF) which occasionally appear in 6 meters. However, Sporadic-E propagation, whereby radio signals bounce off ionized clouds in the lower E region of the ionosphere, is common on the band in summer.

As far as 8 meter, this is what wikipedia has to say.
