Default Nationwide database submissions

How does someone submit an update for the nationwide database? "Nationwide" does not appear as an option under the "State" drop-down menu. I am wanting to submit tone data for the Red Cross (146.2 Hz).

Are you sure that everywhere in the country uses the same tone?

From the posts I have seen reference to relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey, 146.2 Hz was reported. Also, about ten days ago I heard a Red Cross convoy coming through Arkansas on its way to Florida, I think, and their PL was 146.2 Hz on 47.420 MHz. So, I venture to say that that is their tone for nationwide assignments.

This RRDB page shows 146.2, as well as 100.0, 103.5, and CSQ in use. When I was with the ARC years ago they were all CSQ for interop reasons.

Exactly, I've seen, depending on the Region many different CTCSS tone, no one common tone across the country has been found.

Well, "if in doubt, leave it out".
