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-!
