[AMRadio] Why Only 75M

To get started the thing to do is setup a day & time then we would have
operation in each time zone at a known time.

The first step is to get the short range activity going the as the skip
comes back it will expand.

It's my feeling that the low powered AM rigs will do better on 40M than on
75. At least for CW they do so why not expect similar results for AM.
