Really simple, and I don't know why I didn't think of it in the first place.

I have learned something new, thank you!

Personally, I stay off that frequency and tend to hang lower in the band - 28.315 up to about 28.380 area. The notch between 400 and 415 becomes so congested the moment anything opens up- FOR WHAT? if everyone spread out, there would be much more pleasant conditions. the mobile guys don't have a chance there. I even heard one guy calling for a radio check...radio check any body got a radio check???

the band plans are laid out to give a sense of "where should I be doing (x). It was/is a way to avoid total bedlam.

can you transmit a CQ on 28.200-28.300 Yes. Will it be appreciated by us beacon ops? NOT ON YOUR LIFE.  To the folks who say the gentleman's agreement does not mean anything- If someone decided to operate RTTY next to your QSO- Or PSK31, it could potentially make it hard for you to hear.how would you feel if they tell you to pound salt up your wazzoo?

Yes they are gentlemens agreements, WE ARE EXPECTED to act as Ladies and gentlemen. If you don't buy into the Century of traditions of "acting a cut above", that is strictly your decision, Word gets around though.
