A homebrew Single Sideband transmitter

This new article on my Possibly Interesting site is strictly for radio amateurs and other geeks: a photo-essay depicting circuit and construction details of the SSB transmitter I’d built a long time ago. What makes it interesting (other than the nostalgia of vacuum tubes, that is) is the prevalence of improvised, scavenged and military surplus components – necessitated by the paucity of the component supply (and funding) in the Israel of those pre-internet, pre-Startup Nation days.
