Coming home from the station this evening I noticed 10m was still open. Bypassing the SSB segment I headed up to 29000kHz and turned the mode switch to AM.
To my surprise, I heard N3GEG in QSO with F6KHM (who was inaudible). Up 10khz there were some more US stations but much weaker. I could see where the CB expression ‘in the back of the box’ came from. Back down on 29000khz WA8ATF was now working into France. Using an FT101F and a Collins amp, it sounded amazing!
Operating mobile on AM is not without challenges. You hear every powerline, every noisy house, every bus…
Brilliant fun though!
