I agree with what Van said:

... but, one more thing needs to be cleared up, which *might* remove the 
ARRL sponsored blinders off of your eyes...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't some knob-twisting touristing 
visitor take and put that rig out of commission?

Why didn't someone from HQ put the AM Station 'back on the air'? (if 
took an avid AM'er to go there and make adjustments and/or repairs that 
no one at HQ seemed to know how, or desire to do.)

Actions speak louder than words, Pete. 
The simple action of not repairing the AM station at Newington spoke 
volumes to me.

Driving your AM Rig without a scope, 
is like driving your car at night, without headlights. (K4KYV)
