Per Bob King, K7OFT, posted on the NWAPRS list just today:
"UHF APRS SYSTEM IN PUGET SOUND AREA IS ON 440.875 MHz Simplex 9600
That's in the Seattle, WA, area. He also mentioned that it is
important to adjust the deviation with a good service monitor to
Bob Donnell, KD7NM, mentioned this:
"With several 9600 baud projects under our belts over the years,
here in the Seattle area, we've found that +/- 2.75-3.00 kHz
deviation to be the target range, when used with filters designed to
