I've got no dog in this fight, but I don't see SSTV specifically called out on the ARRL band plan. I don't see FT8 or JT65 either. I suspect they fall under "digital", but I don't know for sure. Only a fraction of US Amateurs belong to the ARRL, and many non-members have a disdain for the organization for whatever reason. It is reasonable to assume that some of them would intentionally ignore an unenforceable band plan just because it was published by the ARRL. When I operate CW at the top end of 40m, Phone operators from other countries frequently "interfere". They don't care about the ARRL band plan. Neither do the International broadcast stations that fire up every night in the phone portion of 40m. I have always had this chart hanging on the wall at my operating position. After 25 years on the air, for the life of me I wouldn't be able to tell you what the "SSTV Frequency" is. I use my ears and listen to see if the frequency is clear. Would it surprise you to know that W5YI has their OWN band plan? It is similar, but it contains DX windows, which most amateurs would argue do not exist: http://www.w5yi.org/downloads/FreqChart.pdf . It does not specifcally call out SSTV either. So I as a casual operator would have no idea where your SSTV frequency is, and if it is clear, I could possibly be on it when you decide to fire up and call CQ. So instead of finding an empty frequency or politely calling me, would you just start transmitting because you feel it's the SSTV frequency? How is that any different than the guys on 80 meters telling people "Get off my frequency". Anyway, you got me fired up by saying SSTV frequencies are indicated on "the most popular band plan", which they are not. A band plan is a guide line. We should have the common sense to find a clear frequency before transmitting. QRL, QRL??
