The AM100 is what really got me started with 24/7 broadcasting! Building and operating that kit was entirely too much fun and I hope others will be able to enjoy that experience again.
I think one of the best features of the AM100 was that it was tough as nails. I probably hooked up every possible circuit backwards the first time and it just kept coming back for more.
If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, the original 1982 docs for the AM100 are located in our library, scanned as image files, here:
One thing I’d like to mention at this point as well is that all of the AM transmitters available to us now are, in my opinion, pretty remarkable. Just a few short years ago (well, 20 anyway, when I first became interested in AM part 15 broadcasting), there were very few options and none were affordable.
Now, thanks to the dedicated efforts of a few hardy vendors, the selection is really awesome. I feel quite strongly that there is no bad option these days, it’s simply a matter of choosing the unit that’s best for your needs.
What a great time for the hobby!
