You need to google for CQ-zone map and find out what zone you live in.
73 and good luck!

That was nice they mentioned that. Now if they (along with ARRL and other region organizers, et al) would only back up their rhetoric regarding GCOA frequencies acknowledged since 2005 by all 3 IARU regions...

Contests do not conflict with GCOA.  Contesters are required to clear the frequency when it is required during an actual emergency.  Such behavior has happened before, e.g. Katrina.  There is no such requirement when an emergency is not being conducted.  Even though I have not been a ham for long, I have heard a contester move when told "An emergency is underway on this frequency, please be considerate".  But - if there's no active emergency, then the frequencies are not saved "in case there might be one".

KASSY, Technically you may be correct but you have the wrong attitude. When you have nets set up to handle emergencies like 14,300 maritime mobile net or 14,325 for hurricane Sandy, does it make sense that they should have to waste precious time trying to clear the frequency to be able to assist in emergency communications? Point #2 - If an emergency does arise and other stations are contesting on or near those frequencies, a call for help may never be heard!
My thoughts may be hogwash but they make sense to me. I think the best amateur practice is to just stay clear of frequencies like that.
