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.
