That was during the largest recorded sunspot cycle. Guys on 6 meters were
working all over the country and even worldwide although there weren't
that many countries that had lots of 6 meter privileges. AM was still the
predominant mode on 6 although there were a few that were dabbling in
DSB. This period, and 6 meters, is what sparked my interest in amateur
radio.
