    You play with your toys and we'll play with ours and the twain never shall they meet. We won't bother you and you don't bother us and that will be just dandy for all concerned.

    If you hate AM so much what dragged your sorry ass over here to annoy all the good folks on here?
    I operate SSB also plus CW and you dont hear me whining.

    KM1H -
    ?? Who said I hated AM? I said I don't have much use for it, big difference. Another assumption on your part is that my ass is 'sorry', and that all the good people are annoyed by my presences. And bud, you haven't ever heard me whine. Bless your little heart...


    KA4KOE -
    Sounds like a good idea to me! Thank you for your permission to do what I'm going to do anyway...
    Oh! And bless your little heart too...

    The other attractive thing about the Northeast AM scene in the 70s was the lack of pretentious participants.

    There was an attitude.

    I didn't know "room" was a technical term in RF communications, so did you mean to say, "occupied bandwidth" of the resultant SSB's RF signal?

    The bandwidth of an SSB signal is only meaningful if you don't overdrive the Amp, or if you don't over compress the audio and splatter up and down the band, or hit peaks that exceed the amp's power supply's capability to cause you to sound as if your voice is being modulated with 120 Hz AC, as is often heard.

    Your animus toward AM is shown in your last sentence and the demise of AM isn't going to happen soon, so get over it!

    The original question was, " What made you choose AM?" Since you did not choose AM, why come in here and make rediculous comments?

    I think your commented was simply an effort at S.D.

    Actually, the ratio is more like 3 to 1.

    But in my very limited experience, the typical AM QSO is often a roundtable, with several participants.

    So while the QSOs per kHz might be less with AM, the number of hams on the air per kHz with AM may be greater.
