Studying for the Technician exam and I'm reading question T2B13 out of the new Technician Pool.

It states: Where may SSB phone be used in amateur bands above 50MHz?

The correct answer is C. In at least some portion of all these bands.

My question is how does that square with the US Amateur Radio Bands diagram from ARRL dtd 5 Mar 2012? According to the diagram the only range allowing SSB phone is the bottom end of 10m.

Thanks for the assist.

On 50MHz and higher hams can operate SSB phone in the green areas for "phone and image."

Understood. So since they are using the terms SSB Phone and Phone interchangeably can it mean USB Phone as well?

The convention is to use USB phone on 10M and higher, though it is legal to use LSB on those bands.
