14.196 is not out of US allocations.

14.147 maybe but not .196

Unless the caller is not an Extra or Advanced. Yeah I know, our band 
slices for various licensees are very
confusing, even to us, so how could we expect anyone else to understand 

So, if you were telling W and K's to go away when you were in our phone 
band, you lost
a lot of Q's
