    With all the band plan information out on the net it appears that 146.475 is a simplex frequency but there are some special frequencies that are coordinated as repeaters and most are an odd split. Like 146.46 Brick NJ 146.49 KQ2H NY and 146.475 Norwalk. All 1 meg splits. Before you think you go screaming at someone I would look for the band plans published by the ARRL.

    The ARRL and other bond plans are just suggestions, not law; different regions organize their band resources differently, I wish they wiud not do that.

    The ARRL's bandplan is only a suggestion, not everyone pays attention to the ARRL so not knowing their bandplan isn't that big-a-deal. Sorry 'bout that.

    Repeaters should conform to the state organization that coordinated the repeater channels. Otherwise there would be chaos and QRM between repeaters.

    I honestly thought before clicking this thread, that this would be about HF.

    'nuff said.

    Some operator are ignorant of the band plans; some simply ignore band plans. There IS a difference.
