[AMRadio] NW AM People?

I hope something works out on 40 meters. Several moons ago, the late 70's &
early 80's, 40 meters was the band of choice for low powered rigs on the
east coast. At that time I was living in West By God Virginia and running a
DX100B for the TX and a NC300 for a set of ears. The antenna was a W8JK, two
40 meter colinears fed 180 degrees out of phase with open wire, quarter wave
spacing between the colinears. Great antenna, could load it up on 160, 80,
40, 20, & 10 meters with a home brew tuna. 


Those were better days. I'm on a postage stamp lot now and don't have enough
depth for a dipole on 80 meters. So, it's a full wave loop on 80, fits in
the back yard! For 40 meters I have a dipole that runs diagonally inside the
80 meter loop. There is some interactance between the two, but how cares, I
make a few contacts. 


So here's hoping the 40 thing works out. You might listen for AB7YD out of
Seattle, he runs a DX60 most of the time around 1PM our time. When I hear
him, it's somewhere around 7190-7191. There is a SSB group on 7.288 and hate
AM. No one is transmitting on 7.288 but always interfere with a QSO on
7.290. Just another dead air SSB thing.

Hi Craig,


I know all about the PNW AM group on 3870. I have talked to John (K7RLD) by
email quite a bit.


But I had not heard any of them lately until yesterday. I may have been
tuning in too late. Yesterday they were only on between 4PM and 4:30PM.


I don't have an antenna that will work for transmitting on 75M. That's why
I'm trying to stir up activity on 40M.

Hi Bob,


You're look'n at one! If you want to have an idea of the AM group on 3.870
go to 




The official 3870 Roster is listed there, Mac keeps it updated sending out
revisions several times a year.

Are there any Northwest AM fans on this list?
