For a great AM setup on a budget I would get a used Motorola Mocat series, about $35 used, then get a Motorola amplified base mic for the Spectra series and wire it to the Mocat. Then get a 100W amp if you need power, about $100 used. Total cost maybe $175 tops.

The old US made Motorola CBs had great receivers, big internal speakers and excellent transmit audio and they get real loud with the Motorola base mic.

I'd already have one but I can't justify spending the little cash I have on one.
