Great video. You did a great job homebrewing that fine station. Very impressed with the HB modulation transformer. Reminded me of my early ham radio days on 6 meter AM.

Yes, making your own modulation transformer is not easy.
Just somebody with a radio and a pair of headphones...

its always interesting from one OP to another to see their radio transmitter gear, antenna setup and audio processing equipment.
i have made a few videos concerning mine but they were not as detailed.
in the future, i will make more detailed videos describing everything from the source of audio to the final antenna and publish it for the public.
thanks for the detailed video of your setup !
