For a plate modulator that works great and does not require a hard-to-find   
transformer try the circuit described by Dale Hileman in the April 1955 issue 
of Radio and Television news.   Heising circuit with a clever bias shifting 
scheme included.   Hileman called it a "Reference Shift" modulator.   Circuit 
revisited in ER #91, November 1996 with some updates for using several popular 
sweep tubes in place of the 807 originally employed by Hileman.
