Hi Larry:  what a dinosaur!!! you might even be older that I am. I have not 
heard an 80 AM station since 1950s. but that sure qualifies for a few feet. 
I wonder if anyone ever thought there was something wrong with their xmtr. 
bet you could tell them that you are setting it for side band the way TV 
does!!   Bernie
