should have known better  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have the new model D-100-ATVN.
Performance is nothing like advertised.
On ATV I can barely manage 30 watts. On FM, advertised as 100 watts I only manage 50 watts out with 5 watts in.
And, it's not particularly linear.
with 1 watt carrier (FM) I get 30 watts out; with 2 watts in I get 42 watts out; 5 watts in 50 watts out.
By comparison, my Tokyo Hy-Power HL-130 gives 20 watts out for 1 watt in; 40 watts out for 2 watts in; 80 watts out for 4 watts in.
Should have looked around more.

K4VXP says great amp.  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have used this little amp on fast scan TV for several years and it has served me well with no complaints at all. I would recommend this amp to anyone who wants a little more power on 70cm.

Works well  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had this amp for a little over a year. Don't confuse this model with the newer model D-100-ATVN. Both are similiar in looks but internally different.

Have had great reports on the signals. Used it with a Yaesu 100D outputting at 10 watts (50%). This drives the amp to 100 watts.

Reason I give it a 4-out-of-5 is it is too bad it didn't have a pre-amp. But again, if you have 50+ feet of cable, it won't work well anyways.
