*** Featured Station ***

Mark - K5YGC

Our featured station is a true Texas Power House, the classic AM station of Mark K5YGC Mineral Wells Texas. Mark's station is what is known as "A Tall Ship". Featuring exceptional audio quality Mark's signal is one of the strongest AM signals in the Southwest.  

With transmitters ranging from the classic military T-368 to the legendary Johnson Desk Kilowatt feeding a full wave loop, Mark's legal limit signal is heard border to border, coast to coast on 3890 AM. Mark also has no trouble hearing as he uses a Collins R-390 for his primary receiver along with a National HRO-7 and Hammarlund SP-600. Mark is an exceptional builder and restoration craftsman with a keen eye for detail. Each and every piece of his station's equipment inventory has been rebuilt to perform at or beyond factory specifications.  

Mark is very active with the 3890 AM Texoma Traders Net, as founder of the Texoma Traders Net website, plus our lead net control operator and contributor. You’ll find Mark on 3890 early mornings before sunrise and evenings as time allows. Give K5YGC a call and hear for yourself that great big Texas size sound of K5YGC the 'Mineral Wells Power Station'.


***WINTER PRE-NET SCHEDULE 0630ct - 0700ct***

To accommodate the various schedule needs of the group and to take advantage of pre-sunrise propagation, the 3890 AM Texoma Traders Net now has a Pre-Net check in for short time and DX stations beginning at 0630 with the regular net beginning at 0800. If you are ‘short-time’ and/or a DX check in with or without traffic at 0630 here's a chance to 'get in for the count'. But if you can by all means stick around for the regular net at 0700.
