Correct.   The HT-1E and HT-2 (the one shown in the original post) were
AM transceivers, the HT-2 having an additional VHF converter that
allowed it to hear AM transmissions from the aircraft band.    I
converted a pair of them to 6 meter AM many years ago and used them at
hamfests.   As-is they would slide down to 10 meters but I wanted 6
meters which was a lot more work.  The problem nowadays is finding
crystals or a substitute that will fit in the housings.

Cool cold war relics along with the rest of the Village Radio series
that turn up from time to time when a warehouse is cleaned out.
