Does a (1) non interfering  (2) two meter (3) satellite (4) simplex frequency for worldwide use exist?
I guess one would need to start with the approved world wide satellite frequencies - 144-146 MHz.
Then overlay regional usage band plans and see what was left. 
The ARRL band plan (http://www.arrl.org/FandES/field/regulations/bandplan.html#2m)  for the USA has satellite operations from 144.30-144.50 and 145.80-146.00. That limits it down in a hurry so that criteria #1 is met.

What do other regional band plans have in that range that meet the first criteria?
