Good luck there, Don! I've been trying to get that to happen for a while
now, instead the 'Clump Factor' results. And if I or others leave a
conversation to start up another one, often the other conversation ends
up on that frequency.

I'll be there, regardless of whether I've upgrade to Extra or not.
Here's hoping enough participants show up to make this idea work. If
nothing else, 3-4 people calling CQ on different frequencies should
offer some respectable AM beacons for others to home in on. Other than
the few bad nights we've had recently, I've heard a lot of activity on
75 as well as 160.
