I used to use a daytimer AM broadcast tower on 160 meters at night.   Put out an awesome signal.   Used to set up the ham rig and antenna tuner on top of the ATU box at the tower base.

There is still plenty of AM operation on the bands, especially on 75.

cute. good way to get your coax cut by 5,000 very angry SSBers. i came by a Heathkit Apache (i think?) AM TX. yes, weighed a ton. transformer-modulated in the output. wow. but never put it on the air for afore-mentioned reason. donated it to a museum.

What?  Nobody recommended finding an old 250-1000W tube AM rig for putting on the air?  Ham it up with big iron!  For a receiver get yerself a big ol’ boatanchor like a Hammarlund HQ-129X.  J
