MATCHING PROBLEMS  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Got mine busted from ebay. after much time it works. It is an SB-221, However the case is dark brown.

This was built for 220ac and had many mods in it. THE MODS WERE HOMEMADE.

The high swr on 80 and 40M MAYBE PROBLEMATIC.
Their are upgrades.

I paid $400 for a pig in a poke. I heard that some of the other 3-500z amps are very expensive.

110VDC RELAY SWITCHING WILL MAKE YOU HOMEBREW AN OPTOISOLATOR DEVICE. A MUST FOR ALL RIGS MADE FOR THE PAST 25 YEARS OR SO. simple circuit, a few dollars from radio shack.

If you buy one broke, test the supply. Also do not go for the ohhhh...,you got shorted tubes!!!!
COSY YA $300 FOR NEW TUBES..,GIVE YOU $200 FOR AMP.

3-500Z'S ARE GOOD FOR 20,000HR. I was given the shorted tube, and bad power supply routine several times. I WILL GIVE YOU $175! NOBODY IS GIVING ME ANYTHING!

These amps sell can sell for $800 working.
ONE ameritron is this AMP, just with a few mods.
COST IS $1200.

From what I know this is just the SB-221 in a much better looking case.

Easy Clean and Simple  Time owned: more than 12 months
Great Amplifier, I bought mine used and had to rebuild it, thanks to WA5BUP he worked it over for me after it got over my head... Since then it has operated flawlesly. Do not know if it has anything to do with WA5BUP Completly dis assebling it and polishing all of the unpainted Aluminum interior of the amp. Beautiful is the only word.
