Just because I havn't seen it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist, Don :-)
Sounds interesting, though. I wonder how that would work out, with
something a bit larger? Say, a 250 or 300w dissapation tube in the
final, and one of the same in the bias-shift modulator?
You might need a choke that would handle more than 200mA, but 10HY
chokes @ 500mA seem to be plentiful. I've got a half-dozen or so, here.
Homebrewing at it's finest. You could probably even get away with using
a common DC supply for modulator and final, in that configuration.
