That would work. But even in grounded grid configuration, the amplifier still should be run in fully saturated class C mode if it is to be plate modulated, not linear.
Well, the input has been wonderful and I thank each and every one of your for your input. I think I'll just run the 450T deck in it's constructed configuration for the SSB rig. In the process of building a universal power supply, complete with meters and a Vari-Ac, and use it to power either the SSB amp, or the 250TH x 450TL rig.
The final is near complete - just a few minor repairs. The power supply and modulator are being built from scratch. The big transformer I discussed in another post, a pair of 872A's, 30H @ 500mA choke to meet L(crit)
and somewhere around 25uF @ 5kVDC (total) should filter any hum out. Critical reactance calculates out to somewhere between 20~40Hy - make have to string a pair of chokes together to get there.
That said, anyone have any 5kV oil-filled caps they wish to part with?
