    FYI:

    What is AM Amateur Radio Europe?

    AM Amateur Radio Europe is a growing Facebook community of European radio amateurs.

    The aim of the group is to create a place to discuss the use of the Amplitude Modulation voice mode on HF and VHF. To promote the use of AM on homebrew or commercial equipment, as a place to arrange skeds, organise nets and share circuits. Plus any other ideas on how to promote the use of this fantastic mode.

    The group can be found at the link below and any amateur or short wave listener is most welcome to join.

    If the link is not working, simply type ‘AM Amateur Radio Europe’ into the Facebook search bar and you should find us.

    AM QSO PARTY 2020

    Announcing our very first operating event:
    AM QSO PARTY 2020
    When? Saturday 25th January 2020 - 06:00 UTC until Sunday 26th January - 12:00 UTC.
    To promote / encourage the use of AM on the 160, 80, 40, 20, 15, 12 and 10 metre amateur bands. This is not a 5/9 contest and aim to encourage QSOs and conversation, however points can be gained and certificates awarded.

    There will be points to be gained for each QSO and for each new DXCC worked and there are power categories you can enter to suit all levels of the UK licence. However whilst there are points up for grabs and also certificates to win, the main aim is to get people having conversations using the original voice mode!

    So fire up those vintage rigs, build that homebrew transmitter or even use your modern equipment and experience the joy of operating AM.

    Full details of the AM QSO Party can be found at the following website:

    There is an announcement of this event in QST for January 2020 on page 77. Perhaps AM operators in New England and VE1 can try to participate? I am pleased that QST has listed it.

    That will make a fantastic lead-in to the 2020 AM Rally the following weekend.

    Imagine that, two AM operating events back to back although ours doesn’t include the WARC bands (even though it’s not a contest).

    It’s too bad their Facebook page is private as it would be interesting to learn more about the group. Almost 550 members! AM is certainly alive and well in Europe!

    OH, but wait, there’s more...

    We need more activity on 160m. SSB is taking over our usual AM spots on 1880-85. Use it or lose it!
