    Cool! You mention CW - what frequencies? The frequencies you list are only SSB

    I can assure you that Hiram Maxim NEVER ONCE used SSB :)

    I will check with our CW operator(s) but thought CW would be appropriate as Hiram Percy Maxim was a CW operator.

    I'm sure he probably did AM in the late 1920s or early 1930s until his death in 1936 - it would have been the "amazing new mode" that all the cool kids were using ;)

    The HPM Special Event Station will probably be found CW on 7.035 and 14.035 during daytime, and 1.835 and 3.535 nighttime.

    Awesome! I'll most definitely be listening - would LOVE to work the station on "Top Band" CW
