The following frequency data is directly from the ARRL Considerate Operator’s Frequency Guide. These frequencies are generally recognized for certain modes or activities under normal conditions (all frequencies are in MHz). These are NOT regulations, only guidelines. Occasionally with a high level of amateur radio activity, such as during a period of emergency response, DXpedition or contest, there will be stations operating outside these frequency guidelines - listen carefully..
Nothing in the rules recognizes any net’s, group’s or any individual’s right to any set or special privileges with respect to any specific frequency. Section 97.101(b) of the Rules states that "Each station licensee and each control operator must cooperate in selecting transmitting locations and in making the most effective use of the amateur service frequencies. No frequency will be assigned for the exclusive use of any station. No one "owns" any set frequency. However, social manners are implied and so moving from a net frequency is strongly advised.
It is good practice, and plain good old common sense, for an operator, regardless of mode, to check to see if the frequency is "in use" prior to engaging operation. If you are there first, other operators should make an effort to protect you from interference to the extent possible. Given that 100% interference free operation is an unrealistic expectation in today’s congested bands, some level of interference should be accepted. Try to keep all conversation(s) within an acceptable limits.
