YOU (we) are the future of VHF AM.
Stay with it.  There ARE many of us out here with 6m AM capability 
who just need a NUDGE to get on the air more often!

I think if more of us talked it up on the internet there would be a ton 
more activity and maybe even start some new nets!

I would be willing to get involved.


Hailing DC, VA, MD, FLORIDA!!!


I will be on 50.4 MHz calling CQ and listening to your calls this weekend!
