Superb results thus far  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is my first amplifier in 46 years of being licensed. It's great, and has increased my success in making contacts. For the first month I told no one I had it. Several guys I've worked in the past made remarks such as, "You have a booming signal. What did you do?" I would have thought the ever-present propagation variations would have been their assumption, but apparently not. The 550 is simple to use. The one time it shut itself off was when I forgot to reset the band selector switch. As the user guide states, cycling the power switch brought it back up with no ill effects. Sixty watts of excitation from my Yaesu FT-950 results in 500 watts out of the HL-550. I am delighted.

Thanks for reading.
