[AMRadio] Phone band expansion

I guess I should have specified plate modulated AM transmitters.  You are 
right, my FT1000 Mark V does have the ability to go on AM but it also goes 
on FM, RTTY and PKT.  I wonder how many people use these modern day 
transceivers on these modes.  Let's stop this thread.  Now with the 
expansion of usable frequencies on 75/80, us Extras can go down and play 
radio where the other lesser licensed can't go.  On that subject, I can't 
understand why the Advanced hams don't go down and pass the Extra written 
exam, especially since the code requirements have been eliminated.  My, it's 
so easy to get on radio these days.
