Wednesday October 1st, 2008 on 3880 kcs at 7:00 p.m. East Coast Time marks the start of the Collins Collectors Association Wednesday AM Night, drawing hundreds of vintage stations from across the country.

The event is anchored by a "tall ship" AM station in each time zone. The East Coast and Central sections run for 90 minutes in response to the tremendous participation in those time zones. The remaining time zones will be an hour.

We encourage stations to check-in on AM using Collins and other AM transmitters, new and old. It's an opportunity to revel in this nostalgic mode, enjoy giving vintage equip.m.ent a "run," and sharing some storytelling about classic vacuum tube homebrew and commercial designs.

Typically more than a hundred stations take part in the evening's coast-to-coast AM event by the time it concludes.

Listen for the following anchors and stop by to say hello, won't you? You don't have to be running Collins or vintage gear to be welcomed into the group.
