This morning using my Hbrew cathode modulator with a 45 tube installed I made a successful AM contact with Tim VE6PG. I was using the modulator on my ARC5 T18 transmitter which I repaired, moved to 80M and learned to cathode modulate. He said audio and power was down from my main station AM transmitter (DX60B)but he could hear me ok. Distance exceeds 100 miles ATCF so I am content with that. Band conditions were acceptable although not great. The successfull completion of a long project is always satisfying.
