Anyone for 10m AM?

By way of something different, I listened to AM CB on the way home. It’s always interesting to hear signals fading up and down and to work out where they’re from. This, for me, is all about DXing – regardless of band or mode.

I’m not sure I have ever listened to AM before – at least narrowband AM! What great quality – almost melodious.

So, does anyone operate 29MHz AM? It could be fun 🙂

    I have never operated AM on any HF band, but, would love to give it a try. Doubt band conditions are good enough to reach G4 land from KB0 land with a 100W mobile. But, willing to give it a whirl with anyone up to the challenge.
