This is am interesting piece of work:

>From a 1963 Popular Electronics, I found it on the Glowbug mailing list.

This might be a good "Starter build for a person like me, but the largest
antenna I have is for 80 meters...

How would one move this to the 80 meter band?

Subject: [AMRadio] League dumps threat to AM

The ARRL, a small, non-profit publishing company in Newington Connecticut,
has abandoned a threat to impose a system of bandwidth segregation on the
various modes and activities on HF below 10 meters.

In an email to the club's volunteer administrators, Dave Sumner, the
company's highest-paid, unelected staffer, seems to have acknowledged the
overwhelming opposition arrayed against his group's plan the past several

The threat to AM was specific and unquestionable -- it would have imposed
the first-ever, numerical constraints on bandwidth without providing a means
for licensees to ensure compliance and ward off unwarranted complaints from
those who do not participate in this mode and activity.

The scheme would also have characterized AM as a "footnote" that otherwise
would not be in compliance with their misguided system of bandwidth

Sumner wrote, in part,

Regulation by bandwidth rather than by mode of emission remains
controversial below 28 MHz because of perceived potential impact on
established operating patterns, so these proposals were removed from the
list with one narrow exception.

Those who subscribe to the ARRL can pursue the full text, which contains
several insults and additional patronizing language to those of us who dared
to question the scheme their group tried to slip through.

--And for the truly paranoid
--don't know all the facts
--making their complaints and threats
--have other motives

It is important to note that the club continues to try to sneak through the
small, remaining portion of their scheme that opponents had not, until now,
chosen to challenge.

Fresh opposition remarks about the fraction the League continues to push are
now being filed and accepted on the FCC's Electronic Comment Filing System.

The latest challenges join the carefully considered, well-reasoned arguments
that gave the ARRL a severe spanking and refuted that group's earlier threat
to AM that they now have abandoned.

This appears to be the system of feedback the group in Newington prefers.
