many of us are planning on participating on the Special AM Event that is
set to occur this weekend? The event marks the 100th anniversary of Dr.
Feseden's 'discovery' of Amplitude Modulation. It is my understanding
that several special event stations all over the county, and the world
will be participating in this momentous occasion.
