Swan did the same thing.  There was a 'carrier null' adjustment on the 
front of the Swan 350C that I had (think the 270 and 500 had it, as 
well) but there was no real 'AM' mode, on the radio.  With the carrier 
'unbalanced', you could modulate the thing like AM and be heard on 
-some- diode detector type receivers.

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