...talked me into buying a returned 9500 this week. Got about 12% off the street price and full factory warranty.
A fellow had bought it, started to use it in a contest, and a relay blew. He returned the unit and got a new one; I guess that was his fastest way to go QRO.
I'd been agonizing between THP and RF Concepts for a couple of weeks. What decided it in the end for me was the warranties. THP gives 1 year, RF Concepts four years on the amp and one year on the tube.
I'm getting a 240v line to the shack installed this week. Could do it myself but I really don't like playing with energized breaker boxes.
