-====== US Band Plans ====== 
-This article gathers all information regarding band plans in the US. This band plan only covers bands that have repeaters operating on them, from 10-meters and up. 
  
-Repeaterbook does not conduct any enforcement of the band plans and does not refuse to document stations that are outside of the coordination guidelines or band plan. A repeater listing on Repeaterbook does not, in any way, endorse a particular repeater or establish the legality of the repeater'​s operation. 
- 
-This band plan is provided as a courtesy to users and is used as a template to help administrators and users determine the correlated input frequency of a repeater channel. 
- 
-===== ARRL ===== 
-The ARRL has recommended a band plan. It is not necessarily adopted completely by all coordination entities.

-Notes: Significant regional variations in both current band utilization and the intensity and frequency distribution of noise sources preclude one plan that is suitable for all parts of the country. ​ These variations will require many regional frequency coordinators to maintain band plans that differ in some respects from any national plan.  As with all band plans, locally coordinated plans always take precedence over any general recommendations such as a national band plan.
