Name: "Friendly AM" Net
Day(s): Saturdays and or Sundays
Time: about noon to about 4PM Texas time (1800-2200 Zulu)
Frequency: 7160KC (+/-)

Round-table started by long-time CW operators and others wanting to experiment with AM.

Very informal and uncontrolled net with long-ish talk times allowed but not required.
Any topic welcome but keep the discussion friendly.
Technical topics are always enjoyed, Q&A and advice both ways welcome and encouraged.
Pauses frequently given for new people to give their call, be welcomed and receive a slot.

Usual demographic:
 Old 'commercial' AM transmitters like BC-610, Viking (anything with a carrier that can be modulated).
 Home brew gear of any kind, and frequently with trying improvements or mods to put it on AM.
 Plastic radios, SSB rigs with an "AM switch", DX-60's, and the like; people frequently show up on those as their 1st whack at AM, we encourage them and try to make sure they have fun.
 Most participants are in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico.

The net is usually small so everyone gets to transmit.

Note: if you don't hear anyone and it's 1PM already, call CQ on 7160. More active in the cooler weather due to garage shacks and lots of tubes.

"Be there or be square."  This is a great way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon or a lazy Sunday afternoon.

 It would be nice to have some AM activity during the week on 40.  I call CQ some on 7160 during the daytime but no takers.  The band is usually open judging from the SSB activity.

Forwarded -

The Midwest Military Radio Collectors Group was formed a year ago to
encourage the restoration and use of military radio equipment, building
on the success of similar groups on the East and West coasts.   Since
the military used both AM and USB for voice modes, both modes have
always been welcome on our 40 meter net which meets at 9AM Central time
on 7296 kHz

But, starting Nov. 3, the first Saturday of each month will be conducted
in the AM mode, similar to the First Wednesday Collins Collectors
Association AM net.  All stations are encouraged to check in using AM,
regardless of the type of radio used.    In recognizing the role AM had
as the original operating mode for voice communication by the military,
we hope that a dedicated monthly AM net will encourage more hams to put
more ART-13s, TCS sets, ARC-5s, Angry 9s, and other "veteran radios" on
the air.

And if you happen to hear our USB net on the other weeks of the month,
please feel free to join us, as AM or USB are always welcome.  It would
be great to have AM check-ins, especially using military radios, every
week.   The net runs less than an hour and the indulgence of AM
operators for this time period is appreciated.

To repeat, the "First Saturday MMRCG AM Net" will be held on 7296 kHz at
9AM (14:00Z) starting on Nov. 3rd, 2018, and repeating on the first
Saturday of every month.

Thanks and 73,
