There's a 22A??!!
And all the radio control channels.
22A, 22B, 22C, and of course... These amps go up to 11.
"While I take no sides," I take the side of those who follow the law and make no effort to try to justify the actions of those who do not.
And a 3A, 7A, 11A, 15A, etc...
Were these the R.C. channels?
But I don't think there's a 22A. For some reason the frequencies are jumbled around between 22 and 25.
In other words, they aren't consistently spaced 10 kHz, there are a few 20 kHz gaps.
They were between every fourth or fifth of the 23 channels. Then the big gap between 22 and 23.
If you look at the chart though, there really isn't a gap.
every 10 kHz, channels by frequency order are:
22, 24, 25, 23
Then back to sequence. I wonder why they did that?
That was back when 23 AM channels was it. Then came 40 channels SSB. Many gaps got filled.
Crystal synthesized rigs and switches caused the gaps. Then the PL-02A came into play.
Did someone resurrect the 1960s? This was thoroughly discussed then.
Originally there were 23 channels; Channel 23 was shared with high-power paging (25 watts). The consumer radios of the day weren't selective enough to allow close spacing with that high-powered use, so a gap was left. When the CB band was expanded in the 1970s, the previous gap was allocated to 24 and 25, because the radios were more selective by then.
