Dom, While that bandplan may be true in Italy, or the EU, it is not here in
the US.

Here is the US bandplan for 70cm.(direct from

420.00-426.00 ATV repeater or simplex with 421.25 MHz video carrier control
links and experimental 426.00-432.00 ATV simplex with 427.250-MHz video
carrier frequency
432.00-432.07 EME (Earth-Moon-Earth)
432.07-432.10 Weak-signal CW
432.10 70-cm calling frequency
432.10-432.30 Mixed-mode and weak-signal work
432.30-432.40 Propagation beacons
432.40-433.00 Mixed-mode and weak-signal work
433.00-435.00 Auxiliary/repeater links
435.00-438.00 Satellite only (internationally)
438.00-444.00 ATV repeater input with 439.250-MHz video carrier frequency
and repeater links
442.00-445.00 Repeater inputs and outputs (local option)
445.00-447.00 Shared by auxiliary and control links, repeaters and simplex
(local option)
446.00 National simplex frequency
447.00-450.00 Repeater inputs and outputs (local option)

As anyone can see, the 432.125 to 432.175 uplink is well away from EME and
even ssb operations. Here in Florida even on a contest weekend EVERYONE is
from 432.100-125.
