The Shawnee (6M) and Pawnee (2M) were both AM transceivers, actually a 
receiver and transmitter in one box.

I believe to be a "transceiver", some circuits have to do double duty, 
i.e., an audio output stage reconfigured as an RF output stage for 

I think the original question though regarded an "HF" AM transceiver 
(transmitter/receiver in one box).

The "almost official" companion for the Super Six, (steering column 
mount of course,) back in the 50's was an Elmac AF-67, at least for the 
cognoscenti.  The peasants ran converted ARC-5 transmitters.
