50.305  I have seen this freq on DX Maps.  Are folks here using 30A or something else?
In Europe 50.275MHz is not ideal as it is in the section marked in the Region 1 Bandplan as
50.200-50.300 2.7 kHz SSB/Telegraphy - General Usage

50.305MHz is marked as "50.305 MHz   PSK Centre of Activity" in the MGM/Narrowband/Telegraphy section for the 6M band, but there isn't much PSK being used on 50MHz, it seems, these days.

Eventually, I guess there will be an agreed Q65 area or maybe people will decide that another frequency should be used but, for now, people are trying out Q65 (mainly 30A) on 50.305MHz in Europe.
