I had a couple of requests from DX stations for a summary of the lower edges of the US phone bands...here they are. Frequencies in parentheses, such as (1843), are the 3 kHz SSB carrier frequency closest to the band or segment edge that stations should be using if signals extend from the carrier toward the band edge. Sub-band edges are given for each license class as E (Extra), A (Advanced), and G (General).
If you want to know the edges of all US bands, you can find them in this colorful chart from the ARRL - http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Hambands_color.pdf.
