The Southeastern AM Radio Club is an organization of amateur radio operators who seek to restore and
operate vintage equipment using the AM mode. AM operation can be found in many areas of the
amateur bands. One of the most frequented places is 3885 kilocycles in the 75 meter band. It is on
this frequency that the SAMRC operates a trade and fellowship net each Tuesday evening. Everyone
who operates AM is encouraged to check in beginning at 7:00 PM EDT. The net begins promptly
at 7:00 PM and continues until all check-ins have been heard. A ragchew follows the net. The
SAMRC is affiliated with the Concord Amateur Radio Society and also uses the W4AMI callsign.

Net Control Operators are Andy, WA4KCY and Sam, KF4TXQ
