Hi Dave,

I think you need to check your antenna ???  I hear lot's of AM activity on
75m  (I have to admit I am not on 40m much)

Saturday morning The Midwest Classic Radio Net on 3885 run by Rob WA9ZTY is
on for 2-3 three hours at least.
Sunday morning The DX-60 net goes on for a number of hours on 3880 run by
Mike N8ECR
Wednesday evenings on the First Wednesday of every month on 3880 The Collins
Collectors Association  runs their AM Night for 5-6 hours.
On all the other Wednesdays Mike N8ECR runs the Mighty Elmac net that runs
for three plus hours
On every Tuesday evening the SAMRC run by Andy WA4KCY and Sam KF4TXQ run a
swap net that I can even checkin to from Central Illinois goes on for a
number of hours.
Plus in the mornings 3885, 3880 and others are  busy with AM QSO's until mid
morning.

Plunk dow a couple of bucks an but an issue of Electric Radio and not only
see some great articles but also get a listing of all the AM nets, swaps and
rag chews that go on across this great nation ON AM!
There are a lot listed! And probably many more happening.
