In my never ending fascination with broadcast transmitters, I bring you the Harris/Gates BC1H. This is an updated model of the BC1G, the main difference being the solid state audio and oscillator sections in the later H model. This design uses the simple 833 parallel final and 833 push pull modulator

Harris/Gates BC1H Transmitter running at 1,000 watts into the antenna. Like many old tube transmitters, this sounds great on the air. The transmitter was made in 1975 and is in backup service. For a 37 year old transmitter, it runs like a champ and comes on consistently. Like the preceding Gates BC-1 models, this transmitter is rugged and reliable. My only comment is the transistors in the solid state driver section are no longer available. If that were to become an issue, one can always look up the tube audio driver from previous versions (T and H models). It would be a shame to throw away a good transmitter for lack of a couple of transistors, but I know some who have done just that.
