Tube transmitters for the nostalgic

Some folks like these transmitters because they have a collection of antique radios to serve, some just like the warm glow.  Here are two kits and two scratch-built units for your consideration.

Our first kit comes from Vintage Components across the pond in jolly old England, order through their ebay storeOur second feature is a miniature AM broadcasting station, patterned after the 1939 Zenith model S-7000 Wireless Record Player (long gone listing, now an ebay search for zenith tube am transmitters)
Next a quite successful 6888-based AM transmitter. A 6AB4 or 6C4 is used as an audio preamp and the 6888 as the transmitting tube.Finally, check out Phil's Old Radios' Li'l 7, a high-quality AM broadcast transmitter that you can build at home for less than $50.
The usual warnings apply here, the Vintage Components unit uses safer power sources, the other three transmitters will have mains voltage and current levels present in the circuit - use care!
