The group SSB group on 7.288 has been doing that for years & the FCC doesn't
care. You have to run enough power to hold the frequency.

Subject: [AMRadio] West Coast AM on 7293

Tuned across 40 meters AM last night. 
Wanted to show a friend that was interested in the Hobby how fun AM radio
Well as I tuned in 7293 the SSB splatter was horrible so I switched over to
a SSB rig... What I found was a group on 7288 bashing the AMers and they
purposely were running Upper Sideband to "agitate the AMers". I don't know
what set them off but they were throwing carriers, running high power with
ALC cranked all the way to the right. The SSB signals were as wide an AM
Tuned in 7293 this afternoon had some nice QSO's. Was on AM about 45 minutes
when the group on 7288 started up again. I was watching signals on a SDR,
the AMers were running signals 6-7kc wide while some of the 7288 sidebanders
were running 5-6 kc wide.
So that's what we got to deal with on the West Coast... 
Thank goodness for the super pro 400 which does a good job of fighting the
73' de N5YRJ
