world's farthest qso??  Time owned: more than 12 months
I got a gob of emails congratulating me on working the FT5 on Amsterdam Island. Come to find out the antipode is 7 miles from my QTH in Colo. This was done on 17 meter CW with a windom at 40 ft and the QRO 3KDX amp. Lets say the prop gods weren't with me and the amp got me thru first call..If you want to be heard get the 3KDX from Ray.
See you in the piles...behind me.

FANTSTIC  Time owned: more than 12 months
WOW, is all I can say, WOW. I got this amp based on previous experience with QRO for both quality and the back up given by Ray...I have owned several of the QRO amps over the yrs and still do. I even got to beta test a pair of 4CX1600's for Ray yrs ago.
This amp is so nice. Tuning is easy and very broad banded. It will put out 3K (into a dummy load of course). I have battered it at 1500 watts out in CW, Fone and RTTY contests without a glitch or burp. It does heat the shack.
Looking back at over 50 yrs of ham radio and all the amps Ive had, Kenwood, Swan, Collins big and little, Heath, Henry big and little, home brew 8877 this is by far the finest amp .Ive ever had. As Pee Wee Herman would say "Im the luckiest boy in the world". Compare the quality and company reputation and Rays backup to all the other amps and then look at the prices.....call Ray with an order.
If anyone knows me and amps I can say this is "HUD PROOF". See you in the piles...of course you will be behind me.

FABULOUS  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Owned lots of amps, this one is a beast. Lots of voltage on the 8877 tube. Runs legal limit plus with ease. Ray is great to deal with. Liked this amp sooo much i bought a hf2500 also. These amps are built like a tank,very heavy duty components. I love it. Buy one you will not be dissappointed.GREAT CONTEST AMP.
