Take a moment to look at the IARU Region 2 band plan proposal at:

He makes some valid points not to mention his website is a wonderful
resource of VHF+ operating info.

With regard to 2M frequencies... we all need to get used to thinking
globally, not locally or regionally, as to supplement each others efforts
and not fall into conflict as activity and modes grow.

A bit of effort now to ensure everyone is on the same page now will go a
LONG ways to ensuring a mode conflict free band in the future.

Personally I would love to see some use of the area above 144.300 in region
2 and putting FT8 up there now is a good way to promote that.

PS: If your not on the new WSJT Mode "FT8" for Terrestrial VHF, your
missing out!  Its a vast improvement over JT65 for 6M DXing.
