There have been some OO Notices sent out to people operating SSB in the 
lower part of 160m.  The issuer claimed that there's a 'band plan' on 
160m.  It was supported up to the enforcement level, and when it was 
pointed out to me (and others) I (and I'm sure others) wrote the 
enforcement buearu saying that there -isn't- such a thing as a 'band 
plan' on 'Top band'.  I think it was all eventually dropped.
