Description: The Swan 1200-Z is a linear R.F. Power amplifier intended for use in the Amateur Radio Service. It is capable of PEP voice input power of 1 kilowatt or 600 watts CW, when driven by transmitters or tranceivers producing a minimum output power of 100 watts.

best is last  Time owned: more than 12 months
It's a really nice amp, not too many around. I have 3 of them and plan to keep them all. One of the best features is the tuned input. This allows it to be easily run with the newer solid state radios, A big improvment over the 1200x series.
