60 Meter Amatuer Radio Band Channels as of March 5, 2012
Each channel having an effective bandwidth of 2.8 kHz

Channel Center

Amateur CARRIER
Tuning Frequency

5332 kHz

5330.5 kHz

5348 kHz

5346.5 kHz

NEW 5358.5 kHz

5357.0kHz NEW

5373 kHz

5371.5 kHz

5405 kHz (common US/UK)

5403.5 kHz
It is important to note that the frequencies shown above in the green area of this chart are suppressed carrier frequencies -- the frequencies that appear in your transceiver’s tuning display when your transceiver is in the USB mode.
NO LSB MODE ALLOWED!

Amateur operators shall ensure that their transmission occupies
 only the 2.8 kHz centered around each of these frequencies.

The FCC  changed one frequency effective March 5, 2012 and now grants amateurs access to channels centered on 5332, 5348, 5358.5, 5373, and 5405 kHz.
The last channel, 5405kHz is common to the UK amateur 5-MHz experimental band plan.

This new allocation presents some new twists in amateur HF operation as well as some unfamiliar technical demands. The channelized format was the result of a compromise between the National Telecommunications and Information Agency (NTIA), which administers spectrum occupied by government users--the band's primary occupants--and the FCC. The channels are available to General and higher class licensees.

 The power level changed on March 5, 2012 to 100 W PEP ERP.
You will find the latest information and more about 60 meters at the links below very useful.

(Remember).....The 60 Meter band is a shared band with government transmitters.
Hams are secondary users, not primary!

Operating on the shared 60 meter band can get complicated so learn the new rules!
