Effortless, cool, perfection  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Our contest group (Pembrokeshire Contest Group, Wales) used one of these last weekend in RSGB VHF Field Day on both 4m and 6m. It performed legal limit output on both bands effortlessly, and I could not believe how cool it ran on both days in constant use - it was quiet and I could detect no warmth from it at all. It just sat on the bench quietly doing its job to put us into a potential top three place again, and hopefully the open section win this year. The amp was kindly loaned to the group from the DX Shop Ltd, UK, as we had some issues running valve amps on the generators in use.
This amp is pure quality German engineering, and it is also a thing of beauty! If you are looking for a small footprint instant on reliable pa for 4m and 6m, this is one I would put at the top of my list currently. One is likely to be on my early xmas list this year, with the 2m 1kw version already on the birthday list! You get what you pay for in life and this amp is pure magic, and coupled with the excellent customer service on vhf antennas and cables from Roger at the DX Shop Ltd its a no brainer purchase!
