I heard SSB activity on six this evening but no AM activity.  I'll be monitoring the band and calling CQ tonight and tomorrow.

 Smiley I heard a cw beacon on 50.077 (OA4TT/B) on Sunday the 6th. I called cq on AM on 50.125- no returns and called CQ on 50.4 with no returns either. Anybody out there on 6AM or is it just JOY and me WA4BWO? Sure hope not. Looking for some activity on 6 AM. Before anyone says it, yes I did call CQ on AM on a SSB freq.  I thought it would "scare" up a response!  Tongue oh well.  Better luck next time.

Looks like the propagation has been mostly to South America.  Heard a VP8 (SSB) and several beacons.

Some CW activity to S.A.

Very few signals on 50.125.  I am thinking any AM will have to be when band favors stateside.

Lots of stations in Europe work 6 meters and 6 meter AM. If we get some single or double hop Sporadic E over the Atlantic during the late Spring through the Summer months, working them from the East coast should be easy.

This afternoon, 4 and 5 land stations are working into ZL and FK8 land. That's roughly over 8000 miles depending on where you are. Central states are working into southern South America. But unfortunately, no one is calling CQ DX on 50.4 (give or take drift).
