Hi Pete,

Thank you for the reference, there are others (which I have not been able to
find).  The list describes the AM window from 3870 to 3885.  What is silly
about two calling frequencies?  There are a large number of AM operators on
the band, on all coasts.  3885 is a popular East coast frequency and 3870 is
popular on the West coast.   There is also plenty of activity in-between,
and when the band is open, it is a kick to operate coast-to-coast.  :-)
