Simply the Best!
Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I like the nice technical products and the high power as well. Couple of years ago I lent an OM-Power 3500A from a friend.
I was very glad that I could use it for months.
This (and the other OM-Power amplifiers) is a jewel of HAM radio shack.
Relatively small, aesthetic, not too heavy box and quite high power.
Very reliable, many protects provides its long life.
Sometimes I felt, too much.... :)
E.g. overdrive, high SWR, high currents...
On the limit of its power capacity, sometimes the amplifier stood back to stand by mode.
It was annoying, but I could admit, this happened because of the saving the GU78B tube or other parts.
Turn the drive a bit back and/or fine tune, and the show went on...
The long time test were very succesful, hats to OM-Power crew!
P.S. I liked this construction, that's why I built my modest version.
Product is in production.
