The short answer is Why
Not? AM is fun - AM is cool. The AM Window has for years referred to a set
of frequencies on 75 meters (roughly 3870-3890 kHz) where AM operation is
prevalent. Since this web site serves a similar purpose on the Internet,
thus the name.
Amplitude Modulation (AM) was
once the main voice mode in amateur radio. Now it is a well regarded specialty
within the hobby. AM offers a warm, rich audio quality that provides for
more personal interaction. The simplicity of AM circuit design encourages
hands-on restoration, modification and homebrew construction to an extent
no longer found among contemporary radios.
