Having developed an interest in a.m. recently, I purchased a Heathkit
Apache TX1 a.m. transmitter of about 1960 vintage. Although the Apache was
in reasonable general condition with only a bit of surface rust, the 6146
finals were missing, it had a 27.495Mhz crystal installed (suspicious!) and
a modification to the VFO. An output had been taken from the cathode of the
