Sorry u having trouble finding hams to work. One other thing to keep
in mind (not only you Bill but others) is on any given evening, some %
of ops this time of year are QRT because of wx. For example I'm shut
down right now because thunderstorms moving through tonight. & you
don't have to be right under them--QRN from them will make operating
miserable for any ham within a few hundred miles of one depending on
time of day. Anyway welcome to AM Bill you will find as I have that
it is a lot of fun and all the ops are great people.

I've just completed assembly of my vintage AM station and have spen time fruitlessly calling CQ on 7.290 and 7.160 when I can get in between the SSB lids. Was able to finally complete a QSO with Warren, W1GUD down in Tampa tonight on 7.155 as he was wrapping up a round table with a couple other guys that the QRN and QRM was keeping me from copying.
