Excelent amplifier for HF and 6 meter   Time owned: more than 12 months
This amplifier is not in production anymore. I did find a piece second hand in Greece and imported into PA.
Thanks to SV1NL Stefanos for his great effort in developing and producing this in the past. Such a nice piece of art. It is working fantastic.

Best value for money power amp worldwide  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Best value for money power amp worldwide. Can easily reach more than 1500W PEP on a bird 43P with its 8 MRFs 151s and still sound very clear. Can't tell audio difference if its on or off. It has over heat protection that reduces power levels depending on the temp, high current protection, a few power overdrive protections (voltage and drive), SWR protection, dual power transformers plus a third smaller one for relays, MOSFET polarization, and control circuits. Can easily deliver 1000W with 30W drive in high power mode.

excellent amplifier !!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have about 2+ years of operating this amplifier and I must say it is a fine one, easy to operate and it has an output power (1800W SSB PEP) general coveraged 1.4-30MHz & 50-52MHz with IMD -32dB and gain 15dB.
I have the amplifier aprox.10m away and in the shack I have the control box in which there is a display of output power plus temperature reading, amperes drawn of the mosfets, band using, swr! Also there are 10 protection circuits you could even transmit without antenna and the mosfets survive with no harm at all. Well done to STEFANOS SV1NL!!!
