One of the problems associated with those frequencies below 3.800, and more
particularly 3.700, is the class of license required to operate there. I
haven't looked in a long while but some of the guys who operate AM are
either General or Advanced.
That is also why any new SSB "net" that is formed on 75/80 meters is almost
exclusively between 3.8 and 4 megacycles. You have a much greater audience.
