Here's what I suggested on 15 March:
Yes, lets do it right.
For that one day, everyone QSY to 145.01 and lets show
them how we can build a network instantly.  See the


This is not a threat to 145.01.  In most areas even if there
is a BBS there or a DX cluster, or some other service,
at most there might be 3 or 4 FD sites beaconing once
every 10 minutes for a total packet channel load of
about 0.005 which is totally inconsequential...

And for that day, EVERYONE sets their portable
and temporary digipeaters to TEMPn-N and we use
TEMPn-N as our paths!
