Are we supposed to avoid every frequency where some net or mode claims it's stake? If that's the case, I hereby claim 14.290 as my operating frequency.
I completely agree. With a 6L beam on my tower, I always hear SSTV activity on 14.230 if there's any propagation to anywhere. But if you don't hear any, go for it.
