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.
