Good value  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I ordered this amp direct from Tokyo Hy-power in Japan. It came in under a week. This amp is a key component of my current 2M weak signal station, and has provided many QSOs including 31 grids via EME.

The amp is pretty basic, but works well. I recommend that anyone using the amp for JT65 EME or FSK441 meteor scatter add a fan blowing on the fins to increase cooling. I found the amp would go into self-protection mode after about 45 minutes without the additional cooling. With a 1A 12V DC fan, I can run indefinitely.

This amp is a good way to get medium power for not too much bucks, and the amp is much higher quality than some of the other brick amps out there.
