AM Day Easter Sunday


Image

AM CB revival day.
The Foxtrot Bravo DX group is having an AM day on Easter Sunday. Calling frequency 27125 AM.
All day event but with specific meeting times on the hour.
Everybody welcome, get your AM CB rigs out for an airing!

About time we had another AM day, great fun and Easter Sunday seems a good day to have it. We have an extended weekend and plenty of people at home, some hilltopping as well as there is a good chance of some DX at the moment. Even AM DX, particularly into the USA and South America where AM is still used. I have worked 2 division on AM in recent weeks a couple of times, and even got a response on the Superbowl (Channel 6 27025).

Another good way of making AM contacts when there’s good propagation on 11m, is to call on 27385 LSB and QSY to an AM channel.

Great stuff, I`ll be out and about for this one - good idea to have a shout on the hour throughout the day.
Looking forward to it

Yep will be on air also for the event. Using AM all the time as the locals here seem to have some illness where FM is mentioned so this is an excellent idea and also for when the e skip comes this will be a great mode to have a play on

Always around on the air somewhere or another.

Re: AM Day Easter Sunday


Really looking forward to this as i love using AM as it takes me back to the late 70s when i had a old colt 295 and a firestick on a ground plane kit that my father bought me.....great times.
