I recently restored a Gates BC-1T and it has been a great rig on 160.  No 
special modification was necessary to go all the way up to 1985 kHz.  It was 
already tuned near the top of the broadcast band, 1590 kHz, so I just retuned as 
per the manual and there it was.  If yours is lower in the band you may need to 
change some jumpers or taps.  

The built-in dummy load is very handy.  

You can see some photos on my website at   

and look back through the archives of this mailing list for the discussions 
during my restoration.

I'll send you electronic copies of the manual and schematics.
