Tim, yes worth looking into..

Before we consider that, we should check local activity up there… & evernyone
bring back that information… touch base with your local coordination body as well…

For example we have had some Packet stuff here in the Southern Ontario area in the recent past
but not sure if its still alive.

ie. Check for  Packet, APRS, links, etc .. other FM/Digital  type stuff that my have imbedded in there over time…

It would fit with the RAC bandplan technically it’s “digital”… I see the ARRL bandplan still shows “NEW OSCAR SUB BAND 144.30- 144.5…hmmm

I would suggest we don't place a terrestrial Digital signal in the Middle
of traditionally a CW EME passband. What about above .300 like around

Well below any FM activity on the band plan.
