John,

There's a regular AE gathering between 0800 and 0900 Australian Eastern Time (regardless of Standard or Daylight Saving), with a focus frequency of 144.200. Activity takes in VK1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. This happens every morning, though participation levels can vary a bit. When 144.200 gets chaotic (which it can...) we sometimes QSY up or down as much as 50 kHz from 144.200.

It's also where we make suggestions for QSYing to 70 and 23 cm for AE contacts on those bands.

73,
Barry
