I have no experience with AM on 40 as I don't have an antenna but it 
seems to work on 80.  Tonight I called on 3880 for about ten minutes and 
started talking about fishing and trolling and sitting back drinking 
beer waiting for the poles to bounce as I was getting mighty tired of 
saying CQ.

Eventually, I hooked WA3WBC and then the infamous Timtron.  I never 
talked to him before and was not sure I ever wanted but he did not belch 
once and I didn't have to lecture him on being gross.

We had a nice chat about Rangers and then he fell asleep or something 
like that.
