Hi All
The FCC pages also do not give the complete picture, at least for Region 
1 since there is an important footnote No. 5.96 of the Radio Regulations 
which is used in a number of countries to extend the band from 1850.0 - 
2000 kHz. To provide an accurate reference for those that are 
interested, I have attached the relevant pages from the 2004 (current) 
version of the ITU Radio Regulations.

However it should always be remembered that this is the global framework 
for spectrum allocation; individual administrations may or may not 
implement the ITU picture in full. Most countries now have a national 
frequency allocation table which provides additional details of the 
situation in their country.
