The distance is only a few hours.  I have made the trip a couple of times
myself, and sure would enjoy more.   I do not favor having to fiddle with
needless obstacles to interoperability.  Already, we have to spin from
144.39 to 144.8.  hi hi

P.S.  Remembering the cooperation displayed in resolving our single North
American VHF APRS frequency, I know such improvements are possible and
friendly.  They only require our networked bits of goodwill and time,
principles of the purpose of amateur radio.
