What am I looking at there? Is that 10,000 watts of RF from solid state devices?
Is that your car?

64 solid state devices with 16 volts and 1700 amps!

I e-mailed this guy some years back about building a 600 watt amp for 6 meters. Never heard from him.

Phil,
First off, a 16 pill amp is putting out 1600 watts. You would need at least, a single 4-500 amp alternator or, I have seen a few vehicles running 4-5 alternators along with, 5 and 6 1,000 cold cranking batteries. With that said, that amp probably the best output, around 2,300 to 2,400 watts. 6,400 watts he might have been using 2 amps running together not just one.

Gosh, isn't anyone going to talk about 'Bi-Linear' amplifiers.  I saw one for sale at the last 'fest I was at.

about those tubed business-band radios in the 70s and 80s... our local TV newsroom had both GE and Motorola units in the 60s through the 80s.  the tube jobs were 2E26 into both 6146s and the 12-volt version.  had periodic failures about equal to worn tubes in the news cars.  started going to solid state in the 70s and those issues died out.  what didn't was the prog-line units used as radio remotes would only go 15 to 20 minutes before they temped out, and you had to wait until they cooled.  the motorola HTs didn't have that issue.

Glenn, Phil's post was made three years ago.  I think he's probably moved on from it since then.  Grin
