[AMRadio] AM vs SSB???

Do you mean 45 watts carrier?   (180 watts /4).  You might get away with
this power level at the peak of the sunspot cycle.  Otherwise, the
transmitter would be suitable as a driver for a linear amplifier.

It sounds like a fun project.

What is the difference between 180W PEP AM and 180W PEP SSB? I don't see
any. To me the difference is in the demodulator.

Ask this question because I have access to a BASKETCASE HW-101. This
particular unit has already been used to salvage parts. I have been thinking
about rebuilding what's left of it to an AM transmitter using possibly
Controled Carrier similar to the DX-60.

I could possible get this done by the time the solar cycle improves.

Finding a DX-100 or Apache class transmitter seems out of my reach at this
time. But my feeling is I could make the HW-101 conversion for less than
$200 and I can do it over a period of time. Like at $50/mo!
