Re: HAs anyone used them ???

Good deal. Like I said before, keep the dead key on AM very low. Start out a about 1/2 watt and go from there. 25-30 watts max is what you want to see for a carrier with the amp on. Also if your radio has been tuned up, watch the temps of the amp. Get yourself a decent swr/watt meter and a 3ft coax...

What radio are you planning to use. A single final radio that does about 6-10 watts pep is all that is needed. For SSB, 10-12 watts max. Dead key input may range from .5-2 watts. You want a carrier or about 15-25 watts max out of the amp. And get the KL-203P. A uniden 980 or similar would be a good...
