Well stated, except for the AM window which does exist.  Further the ARRL
has announced 3870 as the West Coast Calling Frequency.  I do notice that it
is hard to find on the present web site.

Only one question.  You seem to be very concerned about AM operation on
3970.  Why haven't we ever heard you operate on 3870?
