Megacycles (shortened form of megacycles per second
abbreviated mc) is the "olde tyme" designation for
megahertz (MHz).  50 mc is the same as 50 MHz and is
the bottom end of 6 meters.  On the top end 165 mc is
165 MHz which is above the 2 meter band and is about
half way through the commercial "highband".  The range
of 50 mc - 165 mc takes in (among other things)
television channels 2 through 6, the FM broadcast
band, the aviation band, as well as 6 meters, 2
meters, and half of the commercial highband.

You "get there" by using equipment designed for VHF
