Great amp   Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Bought this used in December 2015 and it works very well.
I had 14 watts drives it to 176 watts.
Nice for terrestrial SSB.

Fantastic.  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had this for a few years, bought it second hand.
It has never been opened, no need to. A little more than 170W, but why push it, when it works UFB this way.
I'd buy one more, if chance is there.

Solid as a rock  Time owned: more than 12 months
Got this amp used about a year ago, works great.
170-180watts on FM without a problem. Preamp still works well(rare for used amp!) Would buy again.

BUY ONE!  Time owned: more than 12 months
If you can find one of these amps buy it. Will take a lot more than 10 watts in and will put a lot more than 170 watts out. Great gasfet preamp on it also.

Rock solid  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have had this amp for a few years now and I have not had one single problem from it. It can put out 200w pep with no problems all day long. I wish I could find a 6m amp built like this.

Bullet proof-Great Amp  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have owned this amp for 2 years and bought it because my ft-8100 would get so HOT when operating on high power so i thought i would take the stress off the radio by using the amp. Other then blowing one fuse this amplifier has not given me any trouble and i use it in a Freightliner truck day in and day out. I feed that power into a 5/8 antenna and have made contacts over 250 miles away mobile with a decent inversion! Great investment

I'd Buy Another !  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
What can i say...Great Amp - good match to my
IC-251A With 10 Watts in i get about 130-140 Out in allmodes - Draws about 22A @ 13.8v
the Remote Control Head connector was a nice touch and a input for + or - Keying of the amp shows good attention to the needs of the VHF operator - If i can find another I'd buy it in a heartbeat
