Ever wanted the true broadcaster’s feeling in the amateur bands? Thanks to the work of Mr. Carlson, you can. Here is his video explaining and exploring his Gates BC-250-GY commercial AM transmitter. He has modified this particular 250 W broadcast transmitter by building his own VFO to feed the modulation. This video is a long one at a half hour, but it’s worth it to see just about everything you could want of a Gates BC-250-GY.
