When I'm too lazy to fire up my old iron rigs, I use a Kenwood TS-440S running about 12 - 15 watts of AM into my Ameritron AL-80B. This produces 100 - 125 watts of carrier with peaks as high as 600 watts. The 3-500 shows some color in this configuration, but it's built to do that. The audio quality is quite good, based upon mp3 files that have been sent to me as well as on the air reports. There are quite a few people running AM linear with very good results. It the driver sounds excellent, it will still sound excellent as long as the amplifier is loaded correctly.

I ran my DX60 with a Heathkit SB1000 amp with good reports. It is all in the tuning and loading.

Isn't that DX60 just one of the best looking rigs ever?
