>what sort of receivers are in use in the AM community?

I have a lot of good receivers, but for easy AM operating I usually 
reach for my Kenwood R-1000.  I also have an HQ-110 on the operating 
desk, and I'm considering restoring my Collins 75A2 as a main receiver 
as well.

I'm at my ancestral home this week, and I just loaded my old RBB navy 
battleship receiver into the car to take home for possible use as the 
mate to my Gates BC1T transmitter on 160m AM.  82 lbs without power 
supply!  I've got to find a manual or at least a schematic, and build a 
power supply for it.  I'm hoping that, as a prewar receiver, it won't 
need a bunch of parts replaced.
