locked Re: Operating on the 50's


The other thing is that would be a HUGE waste of THE FREQUENCY    .

They don't HAVE to have clean air. you can literally have two stations only 5hz apart and work them just fine!

I have had a -20 station and a +20 station only 10hz apart and work the -20 station with no trouble at all.

If everybody were calibrated that might work.  Problem is they aren't.
Many operators are off by as much as 20Hz or more.

If everyone would operate on the 50’s, which is: set your transmit tone
frequency to multiples of 50  I.e. 200, 250, 300... ...2900, 2950, 3000.
It would immediately make more room.
Here’s an example.
Operator 1 is on 1200
Operator 2 is on 1275
Operator 3 is on 1350

Operator 2 on 1275 is taking up 2 slots.
