Actually, Pacific U.S. entities, including Alaska and Hawaii, can operate
7.075-7.100 SSB, which most hams around the world are unaware of, including
myself prior to my move to Hawaii last month.  KH7R 40m ops have to
constantly deal with this matter.  I'm not sure if 7.100-7.150 SSB
operation is permitted.
