    The AM Rally, aka "Behind the AM Button"...

    What happens when the AM button is pushed? A lot of operators haven't tried it, and that's why there's an event coming up on the April 1-2 weekend that invites everyone who can transmit in the AM mode to join in and expand the capabilities of their amateur stations!

    The AM Rally is a cooperative event organized by AMers, Sidebanders, and CW operators to encourage their fellow operators to try out this sister mode, make contacts, and have a shot at earning certificates in a number of categories. We plan to make the AM Rally fun for everyone, but we also want to help ops who might be new to the mode get their rigs set up and sounding the best they can in time for the event. Whether your rig is software based, transistorized, vacuum tubed, a hybrid, homebrewed, or broadcast, you'll be a welcome part of the AM Rally.

    Visit www.amrally.com for details on the event, contact information, award categories, logging, and tips on getting the most out of your station.

    We look forward to hearing you on the air!

    As the event gets closer (April 1-2), it's helpful to note that the AM Rally website (www.amrally.com) offers some guidance on setting up a variety of rigs for AM.

    The information is found by scrolling down past the event information. Specific rig questions are always welcome.

    With so many Internet receivers available throughout the U.S., it's easier than ever to check your sound.

    Two great sites are:

    WebSDR: www.websdr.org

    KiwiSDR: http://sdr.hu/?top=kiwi

    Many offer the ability to record your audio and download the file.

    Now that we're 1 week out, it seemed like a good time to post a reminder to get ready. Lots of helpful information about modern rig settings and various ways you can log your contacts is on the AM Rally website at www.amrally.com
