I operate AM from about 1880 all the way to 1990.  Most of my activity seems 
to be on about 1885 and 1985, but I often  hear stations in between.  I use 
a VFO with the Gates BC1-T, and the series fed quarter wave vertical works 
across the entire band.  I wouldn't want to be stuck on just one tiny part 
of the band because so much of the AM activity is scattered across the 
entire band.

I rarely transmit on AM below about 1880, but often operate CW on 1800-1825 
or so.

I find that for general QSO's, 1885 is mostly east coast to the Mississippi, 
and 1985 is mostly west of the Mississippi.

I don't hear as much activity in the Gulf coast states as I used to.
