When you suppress the carrier, receiving on an AM receiver is difficult if not a practical impossibility.  On an SSB receiver, either LSB or USB can be used.

This article shows a simple mod to replace 6m with 160m:


I can drive this with a WRL/Globe V-10 VFO.

Rather than adding plate modulation I'd like to add a
balanced modulator stage for DSB.

That way the signal may be easily copied by AM or SSB
receivers - making the venerable T-60 a more versatile
transmitter. (Rx a Gonset G-66B or National NC-190.)

Maybe a 7360 or 6JH8 or 6ME8 or other balanced modulator
stage between buffer and multiplier?


I suppose the Final would have to be modified from
Class C to AB? Possible tweaks for linearity to the
multiplier stage as well?
