Current experience of the Linear amp 2m GS35  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
i purchased the amp in Oct 05 as an up grade on my TE Systems 350 watt brick amp.
when it performs it performs well and will handle the uk limit of 400 watts at less than 1/3 its maximum output.
however i must just be unluckly as in 11 months it has been back to Lin Amp UK 3 times
1 new transformer
1 new G3SEK board
and now it back with them again, fault unknown at this stage.
i can not fault Peter and his Team they have been really good and helpful heres hoping it come back this time and performs for the next 10 years faultless

Satisfactory-Good 7.5/10  Time owned: more than 12 months
Ht transformer blew within first year, LinAmpUK were quick to post replacement F.O.C Peter is a great guy to deal with.
I have some reservations about running this amplifier at over 600w on fsk441/jt65b for long periods, dont think the transformer is up to it, more could be done to improve cooling within the case. This amplifier is not cheap but works very well and has endured hundreds of hours on fsk/jt65
