I agree with Larry here. But I want to know where exactly does it give 
dimension to bandwidth in Part 97? If what Bob says is true, then it really 
doesn't matter. No where does it say 2700Hz, 3200HZ, 3500Hz or 6000Hz. My 
beef with the ARRgghhL is, to paraphrase Nancy Sinatra, "messin' where they 
shouldn't have been messin'."

Try reading Part 97! It says not to use more bandwidth than necessary. And
6KC is all that is necessary for AM. We are not supposed to be pretending we
are AMBC station. I know some people try.

I just went through Part 97. There is no differentiation between AM and SSB.
It just uses the word PHONE. As far as I know both AM and SSB are A3E
