Hi Ed -- Oh, sure, I know about the slide in close and squeeze tactic -- 
I've been in a few frequency fights too.  But I was thinking of the 
more-or-less innocent situation.  For example, I'm on 28002 and somebody in 
Michigan is on 28001.7, both running Europe.  We MIGHT hear each other, if 
the band is open wide and we had time to listen for backscatter, but it's 
more likely we just beat each other up in Europe without knowing it, at 
least for a while.  In that situation, it's my impression that a 100 Hz 
tweak can make a useful difference.
