Here are some test readings of the circuit with the VOM.  
Transistors Voltage Readings in Circuit  
Signal- B=.74  
Oscillator- B=0  
Modulator- B=0  
Resistance in circuit  
E to B= + 17K ohms  
Signal- = - 75K  
C to B= + 9K  
= - 100K  
Oscillator- E to B= + 18K  
= - 280K  
C to B= + 8K  
= - 300K  
Modulator- E to B= + 80K  
= - 100K  
C to B= + 8K  
= - 3M  
Voltage Drops across Resistors:  
560K= 8.2 Volts  
12K= 7.6  
18K= 8.4  
100K= .85  
It looks to as though the transistors were damaged do to excessive temperatures during installation. A BC550 was tested untouched and read as;  
E to B= + ~  
BC550- = - 1.3K  
C to B= + ~  
= - 1.3K  
However, if you see something I don't. Your compliance would be deeply appreciated in getting this circuit up and running.
