Bob,DGN, You can throttle the above 3 K off with an EQ and not let the
transmitter pass the above 3K audio... I run a GATES BC1G which goes out a
lot more then 3K but have it throttled off and can run 100% or more positive
peaks keeping the negative side down below 100% with a limiter...Robert WW9W
runs the same thing with a BC610 and sounds great...

This is wonderful in theory.

So what are we supposed to do with WWII era equipment such as BC-610s?

The entire audio chain goes from 400 to 3500cps.  Guess I'll just 
continue along as I have been doing since I got both of them.

I do run a monitor scope, and I know it is clean.  I do have to throttle 
it down with regard to audio gain.  If I don't, the PEP out WILL exceed 
2000W in a heartbeat!

I found this out after finally getting a peak reading Bird.  I was 
hitting 2500W PEP and hadn't known this as earlier I only had to worry 
about my Amp Supply LK-500ZB.

I certainly am NOT running music!  The resting carrier is "mighty" close 
to 400W.
