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