Well most of the time when I do operate I do AM...  with an old Collins 32V1 
in fact.  When I must do SSB I use my old NC-183 with a product detector that 
I stuffed under the chassis and from there I EQ the audio out to smooth it 
out....  I have to round off the peaks because of my hearing being messed up 
<heh>  perhaps I would be more correct to say I mellow the signal :-)

BTW... I still have my old Fender Super Reverb Silver face with the 6L6GC's...  
I don't use it that much tho...  I have more or less retired to a simple D-10 
acoustic guitar...  which is where I started in the first place HI HI  A 
friemd of mine in the 60's used these huge Ampeg amps with four 6146's in the 
output... now those amps wailed!!!
