[AMRadio] The AM Window

I don't think the "AM Window" would be so bad if it was a little wider, like
around 40 or 50 KHZ.  Right now it seems like the most you can have in the
20 KHZ window is 3 simultaneous AM QSO's without having overlap.  When K1MAN
is on, that number gets knocked down to 1 or 2.  Of course, the sidebanders
might not tolerate any more space dedicated to AM.

There ya go. Dave's on the ball. And come join "bunches" of us most
weekends somewhere below 3860. There more to AM than just 20 KHz of
operating frequencies. You might even convert a sidebander or two to
press that AM button on their rig.
