Title: Let's try 17-meters AM ...
Post by: W7NGA on October 04, 2021, 04:03:45 PM
Greetings from Oregon ..

A few signals on 15-meters have percolated to the surface but 17-meters appears to be more open and primed for good ole Amplitude Modulation.
I say this with some trepidation .. knowing there just might be a few dissenters amongst the crowd over there. However, as the TRON once told me in our discussions about 17-meter AM dissent ...

Well, I had better leave it at that!

Looks like 18.115 to 18.125 MHz might work well as I have seen little activity down there and most signals tend to favor the other end of the band.

Give a listen ... I'll keep the bandwidth throttled at 8 kHz, whereas I have been enjoying 16 kHz splendor on 15-meters.
