Speaking of boat anchors, it occurs to me that taking my old Gooney Bird (CD issue - DAMN yellow with the CD logos on it!) out for some exercise  would be a lot of fun.

Problem is - is anone running AM anymore and in what band segment?

I'd love to get an AM roundtable going in the Boston area just to get the old hollow-state stuff back on the air...

There used to be a sort-of national AM simplex frequency for die-hard Gonset users (hi hi), I think it was 145.7 MHz-?  (This would make sense, it's midway between 145.6 and 145.8, which is a non-descript portion of the band plan.)

GL!

Hi Neighbor! There's Steve, WA1HUD whom you can usually find during morning commuting time (7:30) on the Waltham machine 146.64. I know he's on 6 AM & pretty sure he's on 2 AM, too. Good luck with the Gooney Box.

Re: Hi, Neighbor!

Neat - I'll have to fire up something of a more recent geological age and have a chat on a  morning soon!

Unfortunately, by that commute time I'm usually hard at work herding bits...<grin>

Thanks for the info - Al - N1TWY/ex-WA1YHY
