There is a large SSB group in Texas on 3870 every night, all night
long.  I have checked into the AMI net on 3870 myself, but only when
the band went long and the SSB guys in TX couldn't hear me, and I
couldn't hear them.  The time your AMI starts is prime time for this
Texas SSB group, and I would be breaking rules if I jumped in on AM
right on top of them to check in.
