    Gee... You left that out in your original post... You probably should provide a full picture of an incident prior to carping about things.

    As I said, you left that out before you started telling people how to behave.

    Okay, so there are several issues. One is band plan. The other is whether or not a frequency is in use.

    The OP asserts the frequency was in use. I don't doubt that was true. But do the people making contacts there also understand that the frequency was in use.

    Many times I have been in QSO and a band shift occurs and suddenly there is someone else on the same or nearby frequency, two QSOs, with folks pointlessly arguing about who was there first. QSB happens.

    Or someone on the frequency is simply not heard, until after a new QSO has started. Many instances I have asked if a frequency was in use, several times, with no response, started running the frequency for 30 minutes or more, and many contacts made before someone insists I am interfering with some net or QSO. This is inadvertent. Nothing done wrong. But once it is known that there is interference ( not merely someone insisting he owns the frequency for some net that has been meeting there every day for 400 years ), then one might consider moving, regardless of who believes who was there first. Arguing over frequencies is pointless.

    Yes, we should respect a frequency clearly in use and go somewhere else. But if we do not know the frequency is in use, it is another matter altogether.

    The point is yes we should be respectful and considerate. But we should also not get upset when there is inadvertent QRM. Assuming someone else hears what you hear is naive at best.

    The original post started off by telling people that they need to change their behavior because they were violating some ill defined set of rules. Upon being called out for confusing a band plan for a rule, the op then changed the narrative-- someone was being QRMed, became the new narrative. Upon being called out for that, the op then started claiming that English was not his native language... Basically the Op is backing out of his original position. Lets let him back out gracefully, and agree to disagree...

    There are, but these aren't any of them.

    Get it through your head - THESE BAND PLANS ARE NOT RULES!
