Why? Calling frequencies really don't serve much purpose in my view
beyond leading everyone to one frequency to try to squeeze in. After
all, 3.885 was the AM calling frequency for years, and never once have
I heard anyone call, then move off to leave the frequency clear.

New way of thinking: operate where your license permits, on whatever
clear frequency your privileges allow. It's pointless to box yourself
in, especially in today's radio world. Better to spin the dial and
look for activity or create some, than to let the grease harden in one
spot. Calling frequencies are for those who need to be led.

My opinion, of course.  (o:
