Author Topic: Commander HF 1250  (Read 4131 times)

  I would like to restore a Commander HF 1250.
I have a Commander HF 1250  serial # 418 and it has a 4cx800 in it instead of a "3cx800", are there different versions of this Amp by Command Technologies Inc. or has someone stuck this tube in it's place?  
If there are different tube versions, can I find the exact informantion for my model? Thank You,
x: Lee.

I would recommend you call Pat Stein at Commander.  He is always more than willing to assist in the customer service of any product that bears Commander.  If you need the number, e-mail me. and I will be happy to get it to you.  I have 2 commanders and love em.   Thanks KG8DP

I can't find your name anywhere in the QRZ listing of licensees . What's your call?

I agree it is imprudent to offer amplifier advice to the unlicensed.   There's no "Lee Roy Sanders Jr." in the FCC data base, but it's possible a foreign license is involved.

I'd ask for the callsign, too, prior to providing information...

gimme a break. You KNOW where this is going to be used. There IS a Sr. with the same name listed in the Phenix City Alabama phone book, so you know where to start looking when it shows up on the air down there

      People like you exploit freedom, its'
availability, censorship of truth and reality.  You
better learn to treat others with as much respect as
you want to be treated and those under your household.

      Life has a way to treating you the way you treat
others and yourself.  Your a very dangerous
individual.  I hope I never meet you, and pray to GOD
that you are not allowed again the ability to harm any
other person, place or thing.

All we ask is that you have a valid amateur radio license before you put that amp on the air.  If you do, please let us know your callsign.
If you put the thing on CB or freeband, then you are nothing more than a common lawbreaker who has no regard for the rule of law. We respect all who have earned their privileges honestly and operate within the rules of the FCC. If you are not willing to do that, then you should not expect help from those of us who have EARNED our licenses and operate legally.

The fine for operating a linear amp on CB can be as high as 7 thousand dollars.

Lee Roy,

Here's a partial list of things a CBer can never do that are done every day by hams .
 Talk to astronauts aboard the International Space Station.
  Talk to other hams 1000 miles away using a handheld radio via satellite.
  Have access to frequency bands that allow reliable international coverage for MOBILE stations.
  Have the support of a national organization for technical and legal help in cases involving interference or antenna restrictions .
  Have permission to carry and operate their gear in most foreign countries .
  Have a guaranteed globally exclusive callsign that positively identifies you to other hams .
  Talk all over the world ANY day on a station with NO external amp , that costs less than $300 , antennas included .
  Support disaster communications for Civil Defense and Red Cross.
  Support military personnel through the MARS program .
  And have the support of a friendly community of 700,000 or so licensed operators nationwide who've earned the right to these and other things by demonstrating some basic knowledge and respect for the rules .11 year old girls have passed the EXTRA test .The tests are not overly hard for those who spend a little time and effort to get some really useful knowledge of radio .I guess what it comes down to is that in the world of personal HF radio, there's two kinds of people ---licensed hams---and wannabes.


PS. Working on that amp with the covers off can KILL you if you don't know exactly what you're doing.

Fellows, unless you have screwdrivers at the ready to tighten down what's obviously quite loose, your words won't help.

We should all learn to ignore the trolls.

I have 6 years in Electronic Technology, You can call Columbus
Technical College and ask for my records.  Many courses I was
exempt from taking, by taking their finials.  Since you have
my name and my last address, look it up and you will find I
took courses your Extra class haven't knowledge of.  

I never liked people whom thought they were better than
anyone, had the right to knowledge that others were not
allowed to know, own things only they were allowed and not
allowed to say things that are true.  I see too many that are
so smug and know nothing.  So listen sometimes to some code
coming from the free band late at night and early in the
morning and you will understand why I am using code.  There
are just things that can not be said openly in your own
country neither on any amateur band.  Not because it is vulgar
but just because it is true.  

I have no intention in using amateur bands government police
and want nothing to do with any government or religion.  I
don't care to perpetuate their errors or crimes.  The majority
of Ham operators have become wrong minded, rude, pompous
foolish hypocrites who as well use free bands.  

The way you and the majority carry on has put a bad taste in
my mouth and give Amateur Radio a bad name.  Just because you
can dominate a forum, site, frequency or country, it doesn't
make you right.  Read what it is said that amatuer radio is to
promote.  I haven't seen any of those virtues in what has been
written to me.  All I see is hard nosed people, I don't want
to talk to but am not afraid to confront them about their
words and actions.

The amp wasn't for me but I do own and repair my own
equipment, not just radios, cause I can't afford to have
anyone else repair anything for me.  I have been on disability
since I was 22 years old, I am 50 now and you have no idea of
the world I am living in nor the things you don't know and
take for granted.  

So when you fall off you long tall horse and see what you
actually have said, don't think that someone will not call you
out and show you what you are, that you don't like either.
