The ARRL bandplan calls for keeping SSB above 1843, not 1835.
The US stations don't belong below 1843 on SSB. Unfortunately,
there have been several well known contest US contest ops
flouting the bandplan.
Perhaps Riley will issue some more enforcement notices (like
those of September 12, 2001) for SSB operations below 1843.
Based on those actions, it seems that bandplans are enforceable.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] B-Low 1.835?
Ok guys, what is the final word on operating SSB below 1.835? I played
around to give out a few Q's last night and found several stations CQ'ing
below the window? Is this a gentlemens agreement or the law?
