I've become interested in building a SSB transmitter
with vacuum tube technology. I've been studying
the construction projects in the 50's/60's ARRL
books and a few ARRL/QST collections on SSB transmitters.
I'd like to target about 50 - 100 Watts for 75m phone.
It seems that there are basically two popular methods
of creating a SSB exciter, i.e. phase & filtering
The "rub" is that the required filtering components &
I.F. transformers are not as common as they once were!
Can anyone suggest a "beginner's" design for such an
endeavor, or a commercial unit that I might copy?
Here's a link of the units that I've fabricated to date: http://www.bignick.net/Morgan_Radio/Radio.htm
Perhaps I should post my query in the Homebrewing
section, but there seems to be so much more activity
and response in the Elmer's Forums :-)
