[AMRadio] Where to crank up on 15 Meter AM?

I read somewhere long ago that people checked 21.420 for AM activity, so 
that's where I've been firing up whenever I think the band may be open.

However, if some of the people who *used to get on 14.286 used that crystal, 
they would land on 21.429, assuming, of course, that it was a 40 meter rock 
in the first place.

Thus, the question is, should 21.429 be checked first?

In an ideal world, we'd have AM contacts going from at least 21.400 to 
21.445, perhaps even below 400, using whatever spacing worked.

Remember, 15 meters is ours for the taking!

Just think how surprised the IARU Police will be when the band pops open 
worldwide, and there we are; droves of AM operators!

I think I'll go to sleep with that thought, and see what Saturday brings in 
the way of AM activity.
