If I remember right, 1.880 - 1.9 or so had most the AM activity.  There used 
to be an ol' buzzard BC-610 group that met around 1.985 or so, but I don't 
know if they are still around.  I haven't been on the air in some time 
(fixing to change that), so someone else might have better advice on this.
