Suppressed carrier (dial frequency) should be at least 3kHz away from the
SSB band edge.  On 20m USB that would be 14.347>>

The highest frequency in an ideal transmitter is the highest audio tone 
passed plus (USB) or minus (LSB) the carrier frequency.

I don't even trust 3 kHz, because the rule is zero emissions outside the 
band. :-)
