"new OSCAR sub-band" 144.3-144.5 MHz


This "new" band has been around for a long time.  It is not internationally 
recognized, as many in Europe and some in Australia use that portion of the 
band for weak signal beacons.

The ARISS team, through international coordination, chose frequencies in 
this portion of the band for ISS uplinks (e.g. 144.49) but we are not using 
that uplink in Europe because of the beacons.

The ARRL 2-meter band plan shows a "new OSCAR sub-band" from 144.3-144.5
MHz.  I have never heard of that.  Is this sub-band internationally
authorized for the Amateur Satellite Service?  Do any present or future
amateur satellites use this sub-band?
