VK6BE 144 MHz transmitter 1960s
metre transmitter is what I used in the mid 60s through to the 70s.
The first valve is a 12AT7 reactance modulator. The 6146 output ran
about 20 watts on 144.
transmitter sent CW or NBFM.
Later I put a Class C high power
final on it, home brew of course, using a QQEO7/50 at 120 watts and
