I suggest that stations in the Eastern Time Zone select two 
frequencies, stations in the Central Zone another pair, 
stations in the Mountain Zone a third and stations in the 
Pacific Zone a fourth.

That way we could reduce interference to each other and move 
around at will.  Most of the conversations occur between 
stations that are near each other anyway.
