Note 1: Meteor scatter operation can take place up to 26kHz higher than the reference frequency.
Note 2: 12.5kHz channels numbered RV48-RV63. RV48 input = 145.000 MHz, output=145.600 MHz.
Note 3: 12.5kHz simplex channels numbered V16-V46.   V16=145.200 MHz.
Note 4: Emergency Communications Groups utilising this frequency should take steps to avoid interference to ISS operations
             in non-emergency situations.
Note 5: Embedded data traffic is allowed with digital voice (DV)
Note 6: Simplex use only – no DV gateways
Note 7: EME activity using MGM is commonly practiced between 144.110-144.160 MHz
Note 8: Amplitude Modulation (AM) is acceptable within the All Modes segment. AM usage is typically found on 144.550MHz.
             Users should consider adjacent channel activity when selecting operating frequencies
Note 9: In other countries IARU Region-1 recommend 145.375 MHz
Note 10: May be used for Emergency Communications and Community Events
Note 11: May be used for repeaters in other IARU Region-1 countries
Note 12: DV users are asked not to use this channel, and use 144.6125 MHz for calling.
Note 13: not used
Note 14: 144.800 use should be NBFM to avoid interference to 144.8125 DV Gateways
LICENCE NOTES: Amateur Service and Amateur Satellite Service – Primary User.
                               Beacons may be established for DF competitions except within 50 km of TA 012869 (Scarborough)
