Since most AM operators only use a few frequencies I don't see a problem
using a ART-13.
Checking ART-13 prices on eBay they seem to sell for less than either a
DX-100 or a Viking.
And they can put out much more power.
I have no problems with either a DX-100 or a Viking other than their price.
I just wish it was practical to make your own DX-100/Viking class
transmitter today. But parts that were available 40 years ago are not
readily available today.
