[AMRadio] AM IARU Region 2 Bandplan

Why cant you people understand that you can operate AM anywhere you can 
operate SSB. A calling frequency is just that . A "CALLING FREQUENCY".

The East Coast AM group thinks they own 3880. The West Coast group feels the 
same way about 3870.

What's nice to know is where to look for AM operation. I favor 40M operation 
between 7175 and 7200 because the SWBC is supposed to be gone and that 
section of 40M is open to generals and above.
