Hello All,

My personal experience in Vietnam (1967-68) in the Army SigC is AM 
voice was already dead.  It doesn't and never did work in the high 
noise levels near the equator.  Enjoy AM in the winter but it is just 
isn't an comm medium when near 100% copy is required, unless you are 
WKBW or WABC at 50 kW ERP.  Here at 40N, I only use AM on 
160  reliably from Nov -Mar, and I run an RCA BTA-1R1.


I love AM but I also know its limitations.
