Nautel is top notch.  Great design and excellent support.  

Crown is not what they once were.  They're now part of Ecreso.  You're going to get mixed reviews on their performance in the newer models.  I don't have any real opinion on them personally, they just aren't the same design/company that made the bulletproof models of yesteryear.  

If it's a choice between the three of them, I'd go with the Nautel no question.  

Another manufacturer I'd consider that's on par feature and support-wise is GatesAir.  Their FAX transmitters are good.

I love Nautel transmitters.  I think they are the best.  We didn't buy them until last year when they worked harder to earn our business.

Before I worked here, I had excellent experience with other Nautel transmitters with other companies.

With all due respect to the tube manufacturers and re builders, I have not had success with new or rebuilt tubes.  They are more trouble (IMHO) than they are worth.
