[AMRadio] another thought

Not to be preaching to the choir, and not that I'm disagreeing, but this is a very very fine line to tread in that it borders on broadcasting. During the Riley Hollingsworth days there were FCC actions against hams who were hogging THEIR (in their opinion) frequency by doing the same thing. I'm sure you all know the person or persons at fault. They were being curmudgeonly just to be a-holes.

I'm just saying, if we have some guys who are good at filibustering and can take turns on freq. vs. broadcasting even ham related info, we'd be better off than opening the AM crowd to FCC actions that the SSB crowd can use against us. I'm OK with the SSBS'ers throwing 5.56 at us, but if we give them 7.62 or 50cal. to use on us because we handed them the ammo can we've got no one to blame but ourselves.

Charlie W4MEC that's an interesting thought, but we will probably run up against the amount of time available to get on and try to keep up a wall of carriers.

Sure, my converted broadcast transmitter will run 24/7 on whatever 40m frequency you want, but I may have to resort to recorded programming, like the "Best of 75m AM" alternating with the "Best of 10m AM" another time. 

I just found a 90 minute tape full of the propagation benefits of Solar Cycle 23, with VK2BA and myself in one outstanding QSO, with a sprinkling of others. Wow.

Anyway, I'm game, say where.
