[AMRadio] AM Broadcast Quality

The interesting thing about it is there are no limitations with the flex 
5000, it can transmit a square wave at 10 Hz that looks like a perfect 
square wave.
Rx bandwidth can match exactly the stations audio bandwidth, you can see it.

No tape hiss, no alteration of the EQ in any way, no limits in response, no 

I monitor using the mod monitor audio output, but that sounds much different 
from what people hear at the far end.

That is fine if the Flex is used as receive only and matches the transmit 
bandwidth. Any wideband AM detector can feed audio to any number of cheap 
recorders. You can easily self monitor in the shack.
