Hello Radio Zeppelin! The best way to upload images is to register on this website link https://imgur.com/
Once you get a free account you can upload images to the imgur site, then just click on the uploaded image, then click on the BB linked code. That copies the link to imgur and then you can just paste the link here and it works great! Good luck! Looking forward to seeing those pics of the xmtr!

Here are some pics of the ZEPPELIN RADIO ATHENS. The tubes of the transmitter is EL34 CRYSTAL OSCIL., 2x6146b ,and an OB2 to stabilize the -105v bias tension of the final tubes.
At the left from the transmitter we can see the 2x807 modulator,class AB.
On the floor we have from the left to the right, the 6146b screens reactor choke, the anode reactor choke 11HENRY,the modulation transformer,and the oil capacitor for the heising modulation type.
Except from the 11HENRY reactor all the transformers and the transmitter are homemade.
The metal frame of the transmitter,it was some years ago,a FM transmitter .
Best regards from Greece

Thanks for the very interesting pictures of your homebrew xmtr! That's quite a rig you have there and I was very pleased to hear it here on the east coast of the USA!  8)
