What the FCC rules Say: § 97.303 (h)

Effective March 5, 2012, an amateur station having an operator holding a General, Advanced or Amateur Extra Class license may transmit CW, Upper Sideband or Digital signlas  on the channels 5332 kHz, 5348 kHz, 5358.5 kHz, 5373 kHz and 5405 kHz. Amateur operators shall ensure that their transmission occupies only the 2.8 kHz centered around each of these frequencies. Transmissions shall not exceed an effective radiated power (ERP) of 100 W PEP. For the purpose of computing ERP, the transmitter PEP will be multiplied with the antenna gain relative to a dipole or the equivalent calculation in decibels. A half-wave dipole antenna will be presumed to have a gain of 0 dBd. Licensees using other antennas must maintain in their station records either manufacturer data on the antenna gain or calculations of the antenna gain. No amateur station shall cause harmful interference to stations authorized in the mobile and fixed services; nor is any amateur station protected from interference due to the operation of any such station.
