Haven't been able to get a straight answer on several forums! Is it permissible for Tech Class amateurs to operate on any or all of the JT-65/JT-9 frequencies? Thanks a lot...

Only on 10M and 6M and above. On 10M they are restricted to 28.0 to 28.3 MHz for data modes. Techs are restricted to CW only on 80M, 40M, and 15M.

If I recall in the Tech Lic manual there is a page with the band plan chart that lays out where Tech, General etc are allowed to operate.  Any place where it indicates Tech level and data would be locations where a Tech ticket holder would be allowed to operate digital mode.  If you miss placed your copy of the Tech Lic manual do a search on the internet for ARRL Band Plan and you should be able to find the chart.

73 and good luck,

The ARRL's Technician band chart:

Data segments are clearly marked.

Now is a great time to be on six meters running JT65 and MSK144. This year has seen a dramatic shift from phone to these digital modes on 6m. The improved ability of WSJT-X to decode very weak signals likely accounts for much of the shift.

Stop going to those forums!! There is no grey area on the answer to this question.

Steve,
In your training to become a Technician Class license holder,  you probably should have been taught how to look up FCC rules...  A large number of questions within the current question pool for tech class licenses deal with how to use the FCC R&R. 
Respectfully, you should know how to answer this question yourself, in an unambiguous way. See FCC part 97, part 301.

https://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?c=ecfr&SID=336ab7469b61ecbfa15086dbf1bf2c59&rgn=div5&view=text&node=47:5.0.1.1.6&idno=47#se47.5.97_1301

Not trying to be mean here, but if you don't know how to look up the rules, you really need to learn this ASAP, probably before you ever operate a transmitter.  It will save you getting an OO card, or an FCC notice of violation.

As an aside the ARRL also provides a handy guide to answer your question as well:
http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Tech%20Band%20Chart/US%20Amateur%20Radio%20Technician%20Privileges.pdf

Hope this helps.

Technician class has all operating prevlidges (as Genenaral and Extra) from 6 meters up. Band plans are not FCC regulations just a ARRL idea.

HUH?Huh 
in regard to operating PRIVILEGES, the ARRL bandplan is exactly the same as Federal Law.

Huh?Huh Since when does the ARRL have the full weight and authority of the Federal Government?

 I suppose if you mean that because the bandplan says I can't transmit on 13.985 that is the same as Federal Law.

That statement is confusing. Please elucidate.

The ARRL Band Plan is NOT Law.It suggests what mode should be used on any frequency such as LSB on 40 meter phone.There are several groups who use USB on 40 meters daily & they have for years.They are NOT violating any laws just not following the Band Plan.I'm sure others do this on other bands & the only band I see where it would be an issue is 30 meters but the rest it appears not so.  Shocked
