Bob, I think the General portion is the primary location because there are
some very adept and nice General operators who, for one reason or another,
just haven't upgraded. Therefore, most calling frequencies or "Windows" are
in the General portion as are most nets. When someone starts a net or other
group, they want maximum participation, and if it is in the Advanced or
Extra portion of the bands, you limit the number of participants.. When I
make a contact, I tend to freeze on frequency and not check to see if the
other guy can move, which is silly of me. Maybe now with the exansion, we
will all take a second look at out operating practices.
