    Band plans are suggestions at best, basically places to use a mode or method (SSTV and QRP respectively) to help find others using that mode or method. There is nothing regulatory about them.

    That is an ENTIRELY separate issue from QRM and interference.

    I think the fact English is not his native language is the cause of the confusion between plans, and rules...

    Well of course it was a Disneyland. Isn't that the only place to do it? Given by the head rat... I mean mouse himself! The mouse told us to use 14.230 as our national tune-up frequency...

    Hey! Is that ol' Doc/AF2Y from the old daze of 14.313?! Oh wait... I guess he was on a squeaky treadmill... :p

    Nope, not rules but Gentlemen's agreements based on RESPECT. And, without these agreements it would/will be mass chaos and less enjoyable for everyone.

    The key words here are 'gentlemen' and 'respect.' Two things that America and Americans seem to lack these days.

    Failure to enforce rules or to maintain discipline leads to demoralization and penalizes the innocent instead of the guilty.

    When it comes to things like QRP and SSTV they aren't even that. They're recommended calling frequencies and that's pretty much all they are.

    There are no world wide rules. Here in the U.S. we are regulated by the FCC, no one else. We follow the rules as laid out by the FCC. If your on .230 and some one does not here you or know your there, the there is no violation of anything if the operate on .230. The FCC band allocation gives us 14.000 to 14.350 with no other restrictions other that to operate there under FCC rules. What you may or may not do in Portugal has no bearing on what we can do here.

    I agree that the band plan is shown on hundreds of sights as a guide, It clearly designate frequencies to be used for different modes. its not hard to comply. sstv frequencies have often been jammed by voice ssb calls. so dont complain when a +60 db sstv signal appears in the middle of your qso, if you are on 14230 then you are migrating onto the frequency that every sstv user it adhering to so as not to disrupt the rest of the band. If the sstv users can respect that why can't you? just be a bit more sensible. just imaging the carnage is the odd driver decided to not drive on the same side of the road as everyone else, mayhem ensues, its not hard to do. or it it beyond your common decency to respect the band your intelligente side not a bombastic attitude to others.
