    Anyone know what the popular 17-meter AM frequencies are?

    Some in the upper parts of the band. Overall this band seems to be very underused compared to the others. Don't know why as it has great propagation characteristics.

    For a while AM was showing up on 18.150. At my QTH this is often a busy frequency, but 18.155 is often clear. For those with an old BA transmitter, a 6051.67 Khz crystal multiplied 4X should get you there.
    A surplus FT-243 49 meter crystal with a little grinding might do.
