[AMRadio] Low Power AM?

The only problem I see with 20M is if the BIG BOYS gang up on you.

There is nothing fundamental about 20M requiring high power like there is with 75M.

It's just the ANTI-AM attitude.

  Just like any other mode, it depends (band conditions, QRM, QRN, etc.)  I use my DX-60 barefoot on a compromise antenna and have made a lot of successful contacts on 75 and 40m AM.  Can't say about 20m....

  Next question.

  Many of us have low powered AM transmitters like the small Heath DX series with some form of screen modulation.

  These transmitters previously did OK on 40M and up. 15M and 10M don't really require high power.

  But what about 20M. It seems to me that to play on 20M a GOOD linear is required for just about any small or medium powered transmitter.
