[AMRadio] AM back on the air at - W1AW !

Thanks, Brian for getting back to me.

Any idea when "they" might be operating the station?  Or, is this more or
less a static display?  I assume that if a visitor wants to get on AM, then,
the equipment is operational.  Kind of sporadic operation, I would suppose.

Great job and keep up the good work.

Oh, by the way, has anyone ever thought about the development of an
informational brochure on AM.  Such a handout could be extremely beneficial
our hobby.  These brochures could be conspicuously placed at W1AW, etc.  I
just bet that many new aspiring hams are not acquainted with the mode.  Just
maybe ARRL would oversee the project!!

Thank you.
