I've been down in Dallas for five days at CSVHFS so sorry for the delay.
When I say "channel" and place it inside quotes I am implying that a small
segment of spectrum would be needed rather than a huge passband.  On 20m
psk-31 is found within +/- 500 Hz of 14.070, so 1 KHz might suffice at
first.  Consideration should be given in locating this "1 KHz channel" for
eventual expansion if warranted by demand.  Maybe another term than channel
would be more self-explanatory...I assumed that most readers would
understand that I was speaking of a small frequency sub-band.
