The Greater Cincinnati Amateur Radio Association will hold it annual 
Historic AM Night Thursday, 18DE08, starting at 0200 GMT on 1936 kHz.

The net meets regularly on 1936 kHz, and once a year the net session is held 
in AM mode to commemorate emergency communications provided by the amateur 
radio community during the 1936 Ohio River flood crisis.  After the waters 
receded, the net continued to meet weekly on 1936 kHz until the Pearl Harbor 
shut-down, and many amateurs in the greater Cincinnati area had crystals 
ground for that frequency.  After the war, the net started back up as soon 
as 160m was re-opened to amateur use, but because of LORAN restrictions, did 
not return to 1936 kHz until the 1900-2000 segment became available in the 
mid 1980's.

All amateurs worldwide are invited to participate in this annual AM 
get-together.  Fun is guaranteed for all. Be sure to mark the date/time on 
your calendar.

Thanks to George K8RRH for passing along this announcement.
