That is what we had in the "gentleman's agreement." And no, not exclusive. Just that when FT8 or FT4 moves it overwhelms everyone else. Already I am getting FT8 starting at 14071 and 7071 dial stomping on QSOs underway. For quite a while there has been upside down FT8 which I presumed was new users in LSB mode or those using DSB transmitters which is really not polite. Now am seeing upright FT8. ( yes, I run WSJT-X in parallel to fldigi so I can note call signs of LIDS. )

How feasible is it to allot each new mode their own EXCLUSIVE slice of spectrum? It seems like we'd eventually run out.

I don’t think I would call the WSJTX move a “frequency grab”,
especially since the development team requested feedback on the
suggested frequencies . The very nature of FT8 and FT4 operations
make clustered operations sensible , it’s like fishing with a net .
However I still like the idea of fishing with a single pole and hook
and thus think we should cast wherever we feel like it , within the
band plan .

digital modes on HF, including FT8 / FT4.
