Dave and all:

You asked, and as of today, Monday, 6/21, a new "AM Specialty Page" now
exists on the ARRL Web Site. Check it out.
http://www.arrl.org/tis/info/am.html

Everything you ever wanted to know about AM but were afraid to ask. AM is
moving forward. An AM Class E transmitter article is also in the works
and should be appearing in QST very shortly.

Pete, WA2CWA
