The ARRL Repeater directory has all of the information that you are looking for. It lists suggested simplex channels, the national calling channel, and even has a map of the US showing the channel spacing (15 kHz vs 20 kHz) that is used in each state.
Plenty of information on networking CT can be found on the CT homepage at www.k1ea.com.
