	Mine works just fine for that, if you put it in the CW position, turn 
AF gain up all the way, and adjust volume with RF gain control. No drift, no
problems (and no mod!). I suppose if I was building a contest receiver
I'd not want to do it this way, but then again, I wouldnt be using a fine
old A1 for that application!
