Hello, this is JH8SST/7.  I've been doing AM on 40m and 10m since 2014, but restricted to domestic QSO.

I learned from WU2D Mike YouTube that international 10m AM contacts are made on 29.010 MHz and around recently, and I made the first time trans pacific DX QSO with WB8KRY Joe on 10m AM on Feb. 2 2024.  I was so excited.

I'm using a home brew TX - 6BX6(VXO)-5763(doubler)-813 plate/screen modulated by 6J7-6SN7-6L6GC Push-Pull modulator.  RX is also home-brew RF1 IF2.  Antenna is a 3 element 14/21/28 tribender up 25ft high.

I usually QRV at around 22:00 to 01:00 UTC beaming to USA.  I'm going to try Europe at around 06:00~ UTC.

I do hope to see you on 10m AM.

Best 73's, Jun JH8SST/7

Steve, thanks a lot for the comment.   I'm trying to QRV at around 22:00 UTC, as long as noise is low.   I'm looking forward to meeting you on the air.

This morning, the propagation of 10m was excellent and the band was very quiet here. I heard rag chew was going on on 29.010MHz.

I worked WB8KRY followed by WA8SAJ. The AM signals from them came in 56 to 59+ QSB !   

WA8SAJ Jeff's Crystal microphone gave me AM signals of excellent readability.  . 

It's great morning !   Many thanks to Joe and Jeff.  I do hope to see you on the air again.  Best 73's, Jun JH8SST/7.

Hello Buddly, WD8BIL,

Thank you for the comment.  I did call CQ on 22:00 Feb 25 (here Feb 26 07:00 JST), and also 22:00 Feb 26 ( Feb 27 07:00 JST).

Unfortunately, I received no AM sigal answering my CQ.

I'm going to QRV on that time, as long as noise is low. 

I'd be so appreciate if you'd find me and call me AM.

Hello, G3YPT, John,

Thanks a lot for the comment.   I tried once to work with EU on 29.010MHz AM at around 07:00 UTC before, but I got no reply.

I'm really looking forward to working you on 10m AM!

Dear AMer's in W and EU,  I'm continueing QRV on 10m AM at around 22:00 UTC.   Recently, propagation seems to be less good than in Feb, as even SSB sigs from US are less strong than in Feb.

I'm going to continue attempts for 2-way AM contact with W stations at around 22:00 UTC ~ and also with EU stations at around 08:00 UTC~.

I do hope to see you on the Air by AM.

Mar. 20, I made a contact at 22:00 UTC on 29.017MHz with WA0FDV John from West Fargo, ND. His signals were 59 QSB, and mine 55.
Thank you John for the trans-pacific DX QSO on 28MHz AM !

I doubt youíll hear me in Massachusetts from my Anytone AT-6666 in my work truck, but I see itís 21:51 UTC, so I may put the rig on to see if I hear anything. Iíve never heard a JA, so that would be exciting!
