Poor cooling  Time owned: more than 12 months
This amplifier worked as advertised except that it had grossly inadequate cooling.

Remarkable Sweep Tube Amp from the 60's  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
The Galaxy 2000+ is a unique sweep tube amplifier. Providing coverage for 10-80 meters the unit is compact with a very small RF desktop unit and small, but hefty power supply on a 3' cable. The Galaxy uses 10 sweep tubes! 6HF5 in parrallel producing 1350 watts out, key down. This amazing unit built from 1965-1968 sold for 450. when new. Today, 6HF5 are fairly common and the amp can be retubed to about 75.00! Not bad, 1.3kw for 75.00. Produces a remarkable linear signal with great audio reports. If found intact, grab it at about 250-300. Inexpensive to run, inexpensive to buy, inexpensive to retube. Unique circuitry even for its day, and yep, splatter free.
