What if someone puts up a repeater in one of the surrounding states that interferes with my repeater?

  1. Before anyone puts up a repeater in a surrounding state, the frequency coordinator for the state involved contacts me and the coordinators in other affected states and notifies us of the proposed coordination, we call the process need of professional courtesy. So normally this does not happen.

    Now one of the things we get into is the different states have different separation standards, and in the case of two meters and Texas a slightly different band plan. This usually leads to a bit of negotiation among coordinators and we do our best to resolve the issue.
