    Who's on first? Geez, I'm SO confused.

    It's not? Idaho is a 20 kHz channel spacing state (for the 146-148 MHz range) at least for repeaters.

    Since I live in a 15 kHz area, I don't know what the 20 kHz (repeater) spacing states do for simplex, but have kind of assumed they would use the same 20 kHz spacing for simplex.

    20 kHz simplex spacing would work better than 15 kHz, which is just too close.

    Now there is a really bad idea. We had someone running a simplex repeater on 446.000 MHz for a while, illegally (no ID, no control). Some transmitter hunting was required to track down the location. Fortunately, he was otherwise reasonable and when told he was causing problems (as well as being illegal), he shut it down (or maybe moved to an unused simplex channel).

    A single simplex repeater is bad enough. Having a whole network of them could be a real mess.

    It's the old "mind over matter" saying. You shouldn't "mind" because anything a ham says "doesn't matter". Including me.

    And you all should back off! Glen gave the definitive answer already. Don't be this ham:

    We get along with 15 kHz spacing just fine. It's only too close for lousy receivers or off-frequency receivers and transmitters.:)

    It is not acceptable. The National Calling Frequency should be used for calling only. It is not for any kind of repeater use.
