designed to amplify the audio signal without distorting it.
may be a single tube or two tubes in push-pull. The bias for the driver
is supplied by the driver rectifier. The signal from the driver is fed to
This stage is used to provide the audio power needed to
modulate the RF power amplifier. The modulator may be a single tube, two
or more tubes in push-pull, or any even number of tubes in push-pull
The class of amplifier
used and the circuit arrangement will be determined by the power required
to modulate the RF amplifier, and the permissible distortion.
this stage is supplied by the bias rectifier.
The output is fed to the
final power amplifier, where it is superimposed on the RF carrier and fed
