I've come across a KLM 15-40CL amp from an estate. I've searched the web for info on this amp and can't find any. The amp has type n connectors, so I assume it is a 432 or 440 amp. Am I correct in this ?

Appears to be a 40 watt  UHF amp.  What frequencies?  Who knows?
Maybe a great exercise in futility?
Nothing I need.

YES ... UHF Amplifier, likely for FM service (Class C)
15 watt INPUT (Max) for 40 watt OUTPUT.

Jim Eagleson worked at KLM in that era (1970s)
http://members.surfbest.net/eaglesnest/resume.htm

These amplifiers were designed by Ken Holladay, K6HCP (KLM, Mirage, RF Concepts and now JK Designs).

"KLM" stood for Ken, Leeland, and Mike.
The original company group of Ken Holladay - K6HCP, Leeland "Mel" Farrer - K6KBE,
and Mike Staal - W6MYC.
The amplifier line was eventual acquired by Mirage (late 1970s),
then MFJ acquired Mirage in 1990s.
