Hi Todd,
Good that you're trying to establish some AM action "down low" on 40m.  i have 
o wonder about the time of day though.  Have you done any listening in your 
arget area where other AM stations might receive you ?
I recommend checking reception on a tuneable, streaming audio HF website called 
lobaltuners.com.
You can key up, call CQ, and immediately know whether and how strong you would 
e heard by a station in the region where the internet-based receiver is 
ocated.
I have found this resource very valuable in determining whether band supports 
ropagation anywhere !!! let alone to area where specific AM stations are 
ocated.
It also may prove important as you check your 80meter antenna performance, and 
s you refine any audio shortcomings you may have. I wouldn't sweat the audio 
art of it for now, compared to getting on the air, but sure, you would want to 
now.
Here's a screen shot, with audio, of how I heard my own station as I called CQ 
ecently.  I went from camera mic audio to direct-coupled audio from the 
omputer's sound card. The quality is adequate to reveal any problems.
I was running a 1946 Collins 300-G, retired as the original transmitter of WUST 
n Washington, DC.
