Yes Mike - and my fellow Canadians are not required to utilize frequencies 
below 7100 KHz for SSB.  That is one of my personal gripes with my fellow 
Canadians.  The first 100 KHz of 40 M is very precious to everyone, 
particularly those in Regions 1 and 3.

You'll find me above 7153 KHz when on 40 M SSB.
