Tropical Band Modifications?

Back in the 1970's I lived in New Orleans. At some point I opened up my Japanese AM radio and fiddled with the if slug and trimmer capacitor tuning until I could receive WWV on 2.5 MHz. This would then allow me to pick up some tropical band stations in the winter.

Do any of the current ultralights allow for this modification? The Sony radios almost certainly(?) can't do this, but what about some of the analog tuned Kaito or similar low cost radios?
