---you may be interested to know that Electronics Illustrated in a hamgear
article matched it with a Lafayette HE-30 / KT-320 as their Official
Selection of a hamstation in the $100 (total) range.  My friend's older
brother apparently accepted the wisdom of this recommendation, for this
was exactly the station he had, with a low antenna out to the chicken
shack. Later, when he uplicensed, he added a phonograph amplifier to
plate modulate the AC-1. Probably most folk today wouldn't do that, but
it worked, with no complaints.
