My AM1 has a very loud Bzzzzz on the dead carrier.Any ideas ? The modulation and range are fine. It does'nt make any differance whether there is anything connected to input or not,

That is the exact same problem mine has, and nothing I have tried can stop it. I tried grounding the case, I tried a metal case, I tried RF chokes, and none worked. I am just about fed up with the AM-1 that I think I might go and get an AM-25 or even an FM-25B. AM-1 has a lot of problems and is a poorly designed circut. It has no filtering, and harmonics run wild through the whole thing. I bet that if you turn on your AM-1 and tune a radio to the end of the FM band you will hear the exact hum. Mine has the hum problem and a severe overmodulation problem. I wish that Ramsey would come out with an AM-2, a better designed AM-1 with filtering and stable frequency. Does your AM-1 go the full 1/4th a mile? Mine transmits less than 10 feet on the AM band and over 200 feet on the FM/Air band.
