FIRST WEDNESDAY AM NIGHT!!! Sponsored by the Collins Collectors Association.

Wednesday May 5th, 2010 on 3880 kcs at 7:00 PM local East Coast time marks 
the start of the latest
chapter of First Wednesday AM Night, drawing hundreds of vintage stations 
from across the country.


Since band conditions have been rather unique this Fall and Winter I would 
ask that if one of our anchor stations is having trouble contacting stations 
in his area PLEASE
step up to the plate and offer to help out. It does not matter where you are 
or how much power you are running please lend a hand.

Mike who runs the Mighty Elmac net on the other Wednsday nights of the month 
has been doing that and he has been working stations all over the country.

This is about AM activity not necessarly Collins AM activity. Please pitch 
in and help!

The East Coast and Central sections run for 90 minutes in response to the 
tremendous participation in those time zones. The remaining time zones
will be an hour. We encourage stations to check-in on AM using Collins and 
other AM transmitters, new and
old.  It's an opportunity to revel in this nostalgic mode, enjoy giving 
vintage equipment a "run," and sharing
some storytelling about classic vacuum tube homebrew and commercial designs. 
Typically more than a
hundred stations take part in the evening's coast-to-coast AM event; by the 
time it concludes at 10:00 PM
Local PST.

LISTEN for the following anchors and stop by to say hello, won't you? You 
don't have to be running Collins
or vintage gear to be welcomed into the group.

7:00 PM-8:30 PM Local East Coast Time Anchor:  Roger K5VRX

7:30 PM-9:00 PM Local Central Time Anchor:  Jim W0NKL and Brian K0EFJ

8:00 PM-9:00 PM Local Mountain Time Anchor: K0OJ Jim and Chuck KD0ZS

8:00 PM-9:00 PM Local West Coast Time Anchor:  WA6FIZ Mickey

We are still looking for additional anchors in the West Coast time zone. 
Please contact me if you are interested!
