	I remember seeing an article somewhere..... Maybe Electric Radio Mag some
time ago or possibly an old QST about converting marine radio's for 160m.
I'll try to look but someone else may remember in the mean time. I have an
ols Simpson 45 I held on to for just that purpose....
	I don't think it would be a big deal to do.
	If you get any info, please pass it on....
Good Luck,

Hello to all,
I have a source of old AM marine radios originally used on the 2 MHz
marine band.

These radios still function correctly, most of the 150 watt output
level, with a few 1 KW models.

Has anyone attempted to convert any of this type radio for use on the
160 meter or 75 meter bands?

...Is it worth the effort?
