How about AM during the PHONE CONTESTS?

In the last contests I have monitored all the SSB activity seemed to be
clustered in a small area. Most of the band seemed free. I am talking about
40M and 20M. Right now I never hear much of anything on 75M because of the

The AM people could find their own hole on the bands during the PHONE
contests and operate there. And the frequency could be made public right
here on these reflectors.

> You're right, of course Bill, and what practical value would such
transmissions provide that could not already be shared via audio files over
the internet ?

category as mustering AM on a given frequency, to claim ownership, maintain
a presence, etc.

during events like the AM Bandwarming Party and Heavy Metal Rally. And,
those times on 75m and 10m when conditions were SO good that they deserve a
second listen.

modes, drawing pleasant attention and participation from others wishing to
take part.

you miss it.
