Think Quality of the contact, not the Quantity of the

Here is a quick general rule of thumb for
non-overlapping channel spacing for the average $

CW-HF 2 kHz
SSB-HF 5 kHz
AM-HF 10 kHz

FM VHF (5kdev) Terrestrial 20 kHz
FM VHF Satellite 25-30 kHz
FM UHF Terrestrial 25 kHz
FM UHF Satellite 50 kHz
You actual mileage will vary depending on the $$$$ of
