From all the Ar3's I have seen the low end Broadcast band is not as good as the higher end of the band. I found that reversing the connections to the antenna coil for that band fixes it.
I do not know if all of the coils through the years were made the same but all of the ones I have seen had the same problem. I find it strange that after all the years I have not seen anybody address this problem.
I hope to hear from people that have made this change. Is it a flaw that has gone all these years and nobody caught it?

Worked as a Tec for Lafayette radio for 14 years and then Heathkit for a year close to them going out of business.
