Using Class C Amplifiers for SSB

I recall that Joe Riesert, W1JR, writing in his old VHF/UHF column in Ham
Radio suggested that Class C amplifiers could be used for linear
applications like SSB by injecting a bit of carrier into the drive signal.
The carrier was enough to bias the amplifier into linear operation. As I
remember the amount of carrier required was low, more than 10 dB down from
the signal. Has anybody tried this? It may be a way to use the "Pod" amps
that are being discussed. - Dr. Megacycle KK6MC/5
