At the moment we seem to be seeing quite impressive sunspot numbers, at last. See http://www.solen.info/solar/ . This bodes well for this coming autumn and winter which should see 10m well open to the USA on a regular basis by October. Such conditions offer the chance of transatlantic AM QSOs between 29-29.1MHz even with quite low power. In previous sunspot maximums it has been possible to work AM DX with just a few watts to a mag-mount on the car. AM makes a change from SSB.
