The purpose of this site is to promote AM activity in the Northwest. There is a lot of interest in various aspects of AM work. Audio – Linear Amplifier building – Broadcast Transmitter rebuilding and Antennas to name just a few. I hope to offer articles written by participants of the group as well as include urls to other sites that may be of interest.


Digital photos are always welcome. I hope to build a collection of all of the OM’s in the group as well as make announcements of interest.


Suggestions are very welcome.
