I am new to Ham radio, just passed my general. I have noticed on the ARRL US Amateur Radio Bands .PDF that they show Frequency allocations for Tech, General, Advanced and Extra.
If there are only three license classes to be obtained now, how does this affect these frequency assignments? Can the General licensee use the frequencies listed for Advanced or do those allocations get bumped up to Extra? For Example 20 meters band 14.175-14.225
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Hams who obtained their Advanced class licenses can still use those privileges, even though they aren't available to new hams.

I passed the Advanced class exam at the age of 15 in 1979. The SSA's lifespan calculator says I'll live to 83. Which suggests that the Advanced class may be around for another three decades.

You can get all the privileges available to US hams by passing the Amateur Extra class exam.
