Mix the 1000 Hz signal with your desired RF carrier frequency and amplify. In practice the mixer will give sum and difference frequency outputs (plus, for the purists, a lot of other products). If your carrier frequency is 1 MHz the output signal will consist of 999 kHz,1000 kHz and 1001 kHz (assuming an unbalanced mixer). Separating these signals would require a filter but is not really practical without using a crystal filter. So the normal technique is to mix to an intermediate frequency - perhaps 50 kHz where it is much easier to filter out the unwanted frequency - then mix again to your final output frequency.
The above is the old way of doing this - there are modern techniques that achieve the same using I & Q signals through an A to D.
HTH - but I suspect the answer will be not much!
