Mark, down south of you a bit in DuPage County the DuPage Amateur Radio Club runs a weekly 6 meter AM net followed by a 2 meter AM net, usually 4 or 5 check ins on each.
Details can be found on the website, lots of vintage gear in use, and there is a local monitor receiver that can be listened to over the internet thru Broadcastify.
Make something good happen!

There was a net every Thursday night, and you could generally find someone on 50.4 MHz just about any time of day to talk to. Interest has waned, though, and now I hear almost nothing. I'm guilty myself, because I didn't do my part to keep the frequency active.
> There are groups to the south of me that have regular get-togethers on 6M AM, I think 50.4, but they are just a little to far from me under normal conditions to make contact. I've listened when they're on, and sometimes I can just hear someone, but not enough to understand what's being said. The closer folks in that group have their antennas pointed away from me.
