I'm surprised that no one has commented that on 21000.5 or such, you
are absolutely 
out of the US band according to both ARRL and FCC announcements. I
believe (???) they state quite emphatically that 2.5 kc up from the
bottom is the absolute minimum.

Heck, at .5 up, you wouldn't be legal even on LSB!

I have gotten two replies from two people that belive it is ok to operate
14.150 USB because there will only be a signal above 14.150. But let me ask
you this are your radios calibrated with scopes to make certain they are not
starting out transmitting below 14.150 I ask.  I am a general operator and
many Extra and some dx stations are operating sometimes on the US
extra/general fringe such as 14.225. so do I call them or not? I need that
country. And I also ask this why is it every time I call CQ contest at 7.229
LSB the people from the WAS net at 7.230 tell me that  I am interferring
with the net?  If  theory holds true then everyones interference is really
not interfernce just god propogation splattering over above the LSB
signal....I am pondering to wonder doesn't propogation have anything to do
with weather you can hear anyone even though thier calibrated signal is
doing what it should.
