[AMRadio] Aircraft Radio Set QRP

   There is a Gonset ham to broadcast converter on Ebay right now. Looks
like it would do if you are up to sucking out 50+ years of dust, re-capping,
re-tubing, etc. I believe Gonset was one of several manufacturers that made
number: 220004059767

   I recall back around 1970 when I first discovered ham radio that locals
in Detroit used 1806 Khz as an AM mobile calling frequency.  Maybe some
folks modified the tube type AM car radio to receive 160 meters directly.
Covering 80 m without a converter would be a bigger job.

I have an Airadio TRA-1b transmitter and SU-52B receiver. A very small
tube type pair. I can post a pix.
   If my memory is correct the transmitter can be tuned to the AM
portion of 80mtrs and would be an interesting little transmitter.
But, the receiver covers some of the AM radio band and below in the old
Aircraft/Airport cross banding..
   I seem to remember a converter offered by some mfg that would
downconvert shortwave to the AM Broadcast band like there was for FM
reception for the car..
   Does anyone know what this was or if there is one of the radio kit
mfgs that offer a simple converter.
