Good amp, I'm happy.   Time owned: 6 to 12 months
This IS FCC type accepted.
I purchased this to provide a little muscle for my FDM-Duo sdr transceiver. It will require a beefy 12 volt power supply, at full keydown it will draw about 30 amps. 4 watts in will give 250 watts output. I would advise using a muffin fan if you dont buy the model that comes equipped with them. The auto band switching is seamless. Works great.
The only con I have is : Your antenna SWR should be well 1.5:1 or better. The high SWR protection on this is not too forgiving. I use it with an MFJ-998 auto-tuner and when changing bands I have to "pre-key" the tuner with another rig to make sure my swr is within range or I will have to reboot the amp. Thats more of an issue with the tuner... It will not tune with less than 10 watts input.
