Anyone interested in trying some evening 2m AM in the vicinity of Trenton. NJ?  At present I have about 7watts with a Clegg 22'er and a 12element horizontally polarized yagi.

Not yet. I have some FM nearby. We are going to meet on another mode during the week and switch over to advanced modulation.

   Nearly finished assembling a pair of Cush Craft 2 meter Boomers  13 elements on both very wide bandwidth to go on the soon to be 19 sections of Rohn 45g. Using a Cushcraft phasing harness with multiple RG-11 sections the newer Cushcraft 26 element array with a 52 ohm combiner was a 3 to 4 week backorder. But this will work well across the entire 4 MHz for AM and CW fun at the lower segment and 2 meter FM direct elsewhere. I have some old transceivers to res-erect ( like a Clegg 22er ) with new electrolytics in stock.  Before I guided a local group to put up several local repeators in western, Massachusetts like Mount Greylock, 3,491 ft elevation I had a pair of Cushcraft 11 element yaggi/uda's on the parents roof for direct work with an old GE mobile. Where I replaced the dynamotor with a color TV chassis power xfmr. Cushcraft has a much sturdier element to boom arrangement nowa days. So I expect in several weeks I will be on 75 meter AM looking for direct skeds on 2 meters.  73  Dr. John  K1DEU

Yes. We have talked a couple times so far. it's about a 35 mile path. There's some FM nearby but Chuck's 22er has enough power to be heard here. I'm currently running 25 watts with lesser than great modulation depth.
Improvements will be made soon.....

I can get on two meters from my camp soon but I don't know how far I'll get out? This is a beautiful Sonar 2 meter AM transmitter that is part of my VHF setup.

If you can get a good horiz pol ant up and wait for a summer opening we might be able to talk. Summertime FM simplex brings stuff from all over within about 300 miles.
AM would be easier.

I've got a 2m Gonset communicator II that I'd love to use more often. I've made 1 QSO with another ham in town. QTH here is New Providence, NJ.. 25 miles west of NYC.
