It seems with the early morning 144.205 net that this has become the calling frequency. At least in the Cleveland area. Mike

Yeah, but 144.2 is the national calling frequency.

The action on 205 was started some time ago by a few in the northeast and has grown quite large.
Begins around 8am eastern time and usually goes to about 10am for long distance SSB contacts.
This is to support the growth of 2m SSB.
They picked the 205 so anyone tuning the band has a chance to hear if in propagating range.
Other areas may have picked up on the action.
Look at all the band plans from ARRL for the 'rec comended' frequency uses but may differ in different areas.
I realize 144.205 may cause QRM to the calling frequency of 144.200 but that would not be very big issue on a band like 2 meters in most places unless the band suddenly became crowded like 75 or 40 or 20 meters which I doubt will ever happen in the near future.
If it did, they would move up.
Good luck.
