MSRP $250.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Found this item in a Ham estate. Had original invoice from dealer. Was $250 plus tax in May 1999. Since the manual is now where on the internet. Here are quick specs from the manual:
Freq. 144-148

Mode CW/FM/SSB

Input Power:
(H) (handheld setting) 1w-6w
(M)(mobile setting) 10-45

Output Power
(H) (handheld setting) 5w ==> 160w out
(M)(mobile setting) 30w ==> 160w out

Pre-amp Gain 15db

Power Consumption 13.8v DC 25A
draws 1mA power just hooked up.

Power Low/High, Low cuts the output power in half.

SWEET AMP!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I purchased this amp used & it works GREAT.I drive it with just 31 watts from my ICOM 271A & it produces the 180 watts just fine.I have heard that it will produce 200 watts with the 45 watts MAX of drive it's designed for.If you can find one it's a WINNER!
