    I plan to operate on one or more of the following 80 m freqs: 3.721, 3.705, 3.655.

    Does anyone have a picture of JLO they can share? :p

    So is "Nocturnal Emissions".

    Increasingly, (especially on 160) they roll up the sidewalks by 10 PM. That's about the time I usually just get on, only to find dead bands. Propagation good, just no signals. Where is everybody?

    Exactly!
    Been calling CQ on 3885Kc since about 1:30AM CST.
    Have had only 1 taker so far which was WA5ETK in Texas.
    He was hard copy as it seems the band is very long.
    Nice and quite with only occasionally sporadic lightning crashes.

    Ok folks after thinking about the way the New Years Tall Ship event worked out and how well it worked with a net control of sorts
    I've arranged our monthly Tall Ship in the same format.
    All times are in GMT
    Start out frequency is listed and we will roll through the Time Zones. As one ends the next begins. It would be nice to have a net control per time zone.
    East coast at 1700 gmt
    Cst stations at 1800
    Mst stations at 1900
    PST stations at 2000

    80m-3.725
    Est stations at 2300 gmt
    Cst stations at 0000 gmt
    Mst stations at 0100
    PST stations at 0200
    Net controls

    Once your hour ends stick around and make some contacts with folks you don't hear every day or slide off and keep going with those who are around.

    Is there a way to get it on the main page as an event, so all see it as they log in? It seems like it can be fun and interesting as a way to promote the AM mode. I am dying to get more AM time on my old clunkers, there's just not enough folks on who want to talk in that mode around me and I rarely find those who do.

    James, what band or bands do you want to operate? What are your "old clunkers" exactly? I may not understand the context but I ask because you are in a hot bed of AM on the upper East coast. You should be able to work guys with a Ranger and dipole on 75 m. in late afternoon early evening. Try checking into a net. There are AM nets over your way--for example the Old Military Radio Net on 3885 every Saturday at 5 a.m. Eastern time. I expect your big challenge in Brooklyn will be receiving. GL
