The Greater Cincinnati Amateur Radio Association 1936 Net will host its 
annual AM night on Thursday 27 December, 2007,  starting at 9 PM Eastern 
Standard Time on 1936 kHz.  Everyone with AM capability is invited to 
participate, regardless of QTH.  In years past, stations as far away as the 
west coast of Canada have joined in.

The club started in 1936 as a group of hams in the Cincinnati area who set 
up and maintained emergency communications during the 1936 flood.  The group 
has met on 1936 kHz ever since, except during the War years.  The years when 
that part of the band was unavailable because of LORAN, the net operated but 
another frequency was used.

The AM event will begin at 9 PM and run until everyone has called it an 
evening.  The net normally operates on SSB, but this one night of the year, 
conducts its operation on AM to commemorate the amateurs' response to the 
flood emergency.

See you on 160 next Thursday.
