70MHz operation

The WSPR frequency for 70MHz (UK has always had it, and a few more European countries coming on line now...) is not properly defined. Our bandplan lists 70.03 as recommended, but that's just the Personal Beacon allocation.

I suggest - unless anyone knows better - we use the band 70.0300 to 70.0302MHz, USB dial frequency / carrier on 70.0286MHz.

I'm currently running a beacon on 70.03015 based on the design at www.g4jnt.com/WSPRBCNS.ZIP .
