So, when people talk about 2M SSB, it's understood that they would normally be talking about USB, correct (as 2M is the higher portion of the spectrum)?  
The Handbook states that a person could use either USB or LSB if they adjust the reference frequency to hit the same center freq.  Does this mean that a person using LSB could speak to a person using USB if they moved their VFO up to hit the same center freq that the USB is using?

Nope.

Wrong sideband selection = Wrong BFO injection side = Wrong filter slope = Donald Duck on crack.

If your RX does HF try tuning across the voice portion of 20 Meters in LSB. You'll hear signals but the detected audio won't tell you much. Wink

OK, that makes sense.    If I understand correctly, the USB could receive the LSB, but it would be much distorted, perhaps to uselessness. This is because the LSB would be the mirror image of the USB, right?
I'm just trying to understand the concept; I don't have an SSB capable xceiver yet :p
