I almost did not comment David, but was not sure if you ment all hams of 
just "us'  if just us I am not surprised even a little, the guys on AM 
typically have a good idea of what they are doing and that is a major reason 
why I work AM.  ten was open a bit yesterday and I worked a few 
stations.(SSB)  the conversations were short ( not on my end) and sounded 
like CB jargon.

>> HI Dave: not to throw water on you premise, but the sample size is far
