My 160m AM receiver project is done.  It was based on parts from a
Zenith 5-tube broadcast radio (actually the same model as our family
kitchen table radio when I was a little kid) but I pulled variable cap 
plates and
added a few parts to move it up to 160m and create a better band-spread
across the dial.  I was also able to get a double-humped response on 
antenna tracking and avoid the need for a front panel antenna trimmer 


The picture of the front panel was snapped at the moment it was 
one of the crew on 1985 kHz.  The signal was about S9+15dB on my other
