Gotta be something said about having 5 or 6 alternators running together 
to power -one- amplifier.

Someone could build up a solid state amp, using 8 of those hot-rod 
Toshiba 2SC2879 transistors with a tuned in/output circuit.

Those are the same transistors that some of the YeaComWoods use in their 
final, and get 100w out of a pair.

Some -non-filtered- amps are getting 350w out of the same pair.  I 
figure 8, with proper filtering is 400~500w (conservatively) and with 
25w of drive, should make for some fairly decent sounding AM, from a 
properly adjusted rice-box.

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