Good for Jumping between the Bands , Poor for Waeak Signals !  Time owned: more than 12 months
i had this Very Quick , Small and Easy to Use Amplifier .

I Love it to Jump from Station to Station , from Band to Band.

But the PowerSuplay or the Display makes Noise on 10-20m Band
( i have Videos were you can see the Wandering Noise on Waterfall )
When you work VERY Weak Stations is not real Cool when this noise comes into the DX-Stations when you think they call you in Pile UP

Also i get a CAT Error with the TS590SG .
( my Mail with the Cat Error i write in the Time of Warranty to the Manufacturer GBHS )
I Wait more than a Half Year for an Update
( then the PA was not longer in Warranty )

The Manufacturer will only fix that Cat issue only when i pay Porto around 40-50 to the Manufacturer and 44 back , also Around 80-95

Thant's not good Support for a PA with 600 Watts for 1800

i run the PA in Automode but in this mode you can`t fine adjust the Output Power !!!


i Sell it an buy y Better Product !
What not generate Noise on the Bands !!!

excellent  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I gave a review a few months ago, but now after almost a year I will express my former feelings about this excellent amplifier. I have used and still use this HAL 600 every day on 3630 KHz. Of course I made several mistakes during tuning and I always was afraid something went wrong due to my mistuning, too much input power etc. Yes the red warning light went on, pushed the OK button and again it worked again like just from the factory. I love this little amplifier. Its worth several plusses. 10++++ de pa0rtu, Klaas

"State of the art" amplifier  Time owned: more than 12 months
I followed the birth of this new amp since the beginning and I own the first one ever made by Giordano IW2ANU (owner of the company).
It's in my shack sinde February 2013.
Well, I've to say that is a "state of the art" amplifier, completely microprocessor controlled including automatic bandswitch via RS232 on the back panel.
The test "on the field" was extremely hard during pre-production, also by using this amp during the last 2 dxpedition by MDXC in 2012 (9N7MD) and 2013 (S21ZBC).
Once in the shack you can install and forget:it works flawlessly, all the protections are very well made.
You can find also the english manual and carachteristics on the web site.
