There are others that use old broadcast AM transmitters beyond ham limits as well!
I ran a pair of 250TH's modulated by another pair.
Separate power supplies, 1500v @100mA on the final. 3kVDC on the
modulators, resting at 120mA.
At -rest-, there was more power being dissipated by the modulator, than
there was in the final, but man did that thing sound -good-!
