Oh shucks,

Gotta go back and take a math course again. Big difference between DC input
and Approx. Output power. Pair of 813's rated and about 800 watts input in
this old 60's handbook. So 750 watts in the advertisment is a good number
and the 811A's would get it to 100% modulation or very close.

Must do the math correctly. I stand corrected.

Hi Bry,

Pair of 813's at 1KW wouldn't be my first choice, but then again for amateur
service, give it a try. I don't know........never built one. A pair of
4-250A's X 810's would be a fine first choice, or 4-400A's X 810's to really
loaf along.

Trying to 100% plate modulate a pair of 813's with a pair of 811's as
modulators at 750 watts DC input to the finals?  But,I'd consider looking at
the toob specs as not to p*ss beat them, heard the other day some toobs
aren't being made anymore. Then again, haven't looked under the hood of the
transmitter in question and haven't a clue as to the modulation method.

But back to the Sweet Home/Salem homebrew transmitter........still worth a
lookie-see. And I don't have a nickel in it.

QST published a number of articles showing a pair of 813 tubes
used as a 1KW input RF final, if I am not mistaken.
