2 meter human spaceflight freqs

Dino and others,

If there are going to be changes in the band plan, please let me know what 
the changes will be and I will provide as much guidance as possible.

Clearly, the OSCAR sub-band 145.80-146 should be kept clear.  144.49 is our 
primary US voice uplink channel.  We also have options to use 144.47 & 
144.45.  APRS is on 144.39.  And the weak signal and satellite control 
freqs in the lower end of the 2 meter band should be avoided.

Miles' discussion of a weak signal "guard band" is important.  Back when we 
jointly did the APRS QSY, I gave a presentation to inform the terrestrial, 
APRS, community of the challenges of communicating with space 
vehicles.  This, in part, led to the APRS QSY activity from 145.79 to 
144.39.  I think these charts are still valid 6 years later.  For those
