Good luck getting your AM radio to work at 600mh. I guess he maeans kHz.
How, why, does the choke work. my guess is that it is trying to tune the spark gap emission into the AM broadcasting band – 600 kHz – so it can be picked up on an AM receiver. That would be hit and miss because the C element is just stray capacitance.
