This subject seems both off-topic and out of control, but let me
point out one more thing.

With a proper BFO setting a 2.8 kHzx BW for SSB would be
transmitted audio freqs of 300 to 3100 Hz. Thus the proper
AM BW would be 6.2 kHz to get up to 3100 Hz in the audio

And to respond to a previous post, I see no requirement
that one must be a ham to join this list - one desn't
have to be a ham to love tube type gear.
