Me and KN0R, (now the fine call, KK4AM) got on 160M and ran NBFM at about 
1500watts. Naturally the slopbucketeers threw a fit. They tried to convince 
us that FM was illegal down there. I kindly told them to check out what the 
rules say and I just happened to have a copy of Part 97 that I recited to 
him. By saying this I am admiting to using a riceburner. But it seldom gets

I have operated AM since 1955 and hope to be around
for at least another 30 on AM. Like the coordination of
FM repeaters has done The best thing to get their "GOAT"
is to plan a series of AM events every 30 KHz across the
80 meter band  and have all the AMers fire up and really
show the activity.
Possibly setting up regions of the country on different freqs
to allow lots of local/region contacts and reduce interference
to next region. AM RULES.
I realize many are crystal controlled on 3880/3885 but
those able should spread out in groups daily across the
band. I do hear some activity on 3810, 3785 and other freqs.
We need more activity there and other freqs. Some groups
should move if possible and reduce interference on 3880 and
Just fodder for thought guys. Talk AM-make SSB worry.
Healthfully yours,
