I came across this site while I was looking for information on the AM1C. I’ll have to concur with the other posters that the AM1C is not a very good transmitter. But as it stands for me, I don’t have a lot of money, so it will have to do for now.
Up until now, I’ve had it running for several months with no real problems, broadcasting “Wolf Hill Radio” with a range of about my back yard. The signal drifted badly at first, but I got the idea to move it into an old circuit breaker panel box, which I also grounded, and the signal always stayed close to the 1670 I have it tuned to.
Now here is my problem. In the last few days, it has stopped tuning. It seems to be locked into 1690 AM, and the tuner has no impact. If I try to tune the slug to either end, it will suddenly jump up to 1720. I was just wondering if anyone would have any idea as to the cause of the problem.
