One would think that, if an exciter with AM modulation driving a tube or array
of tubes operating in a linear mode was such a perfect solution, then
manufacturers would have created such beasts to meet the demands of the many
radio stations that wanting them. Since plate modulated transmitters were in
fact 'the' preferred broadcast solution prior to the introduction of
semiconductors seems to validate precisely why they are still liked today.
