Through general consensus would it be possible to establish a unofficial 
"DX watering hole"...Essentially, use a given frequency (downlink) only 
when the satellite is less than 4-5 degrees.

Wayne replies:

I don't understand.  Every satellite is always less than 4 degrees 
elevation for somebody.

It would make sense to have a designated DX calling frequency on linear 
transponders that are congested with many users.  But I don't think 
that's the case presently.
