Great Amplifier  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is my 12th HF amplifier, and quite possibly my last. It is by far the best I have ever owned. This is one rugged legal limit amplifier!

*Ease of operation
*Full legal power
*Impressive construction
*Legendary TenTec support

Super Amp  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
My Titan 3 has been on the air since December and is driven by my Orion. The amp's construction is excellent. Tuning is smooth and repeatable to get 1.5KW out on all bands. QSK is very fast and smooth, even up to 70wpm. The fan noise and the QSK relays are very quiet. The Titan 3 has performed flawless since I put it on my desk. Couldn't ask for a more trouble free piece of equipment.

HEFTY, WITH PERFORMANCE TO MATCH  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
My Titan III has been on line since early September with no problems but very impressive performance. The butter smooth tuning and excellent repeatability means once the amp is warmed up and on standby I can tune "by the book" and call the DX in seconds instead of a minute or more. The sheet metal work is impressive and the general fit and finish is first cabin. It's not a cheap amplifier, but it is well worth the money.

RETURNED FROM TEN TEC  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
My Titan III was returned from the factory with a new tube. The problem that I reported was caused by a shorted tube taking out the cathode resistor.
