Hey Thanks Scott! I will have to see about that for sure. Anything AM 
for me :)

And thank you to Jim who sent the Clegg Zeus info. I think the shipping 
on that would be as much as the radio!

>> About 10 years ago or so there were a bunch of local hams here in southern Maine who got fired up about getting on 6M AM with the then-plentiful rigs of the 19050s and 1960s. 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.
