GREAT BACK IN THE DAY  Time owned: months
I bought one used off CQ or 73 magazine in the early 60s. It arrived in the mail with my novice license. I paired it with a Hallicrafters S-85 receiver and an endfed dipole. I worked a lot of domestic stations but replaced the AC-1 with a Heathkit DX-40 and an Eico 722 vfo when I upgraded to General. I also upgraded the receiver with a National NC-300, the antennas to Inverted Vees, and then had a respectable station and corresponding signal. The Ameco was a lot of fun despite the 15 watts input limitation. Those were the days, my friend.

Semper Fi,
