Re: who runs what

Hey...

I never use an amp on 11M.

On 10,12,15,17 and 20M I rarely use my Tokyo Hy-Power HL-1.2Kfx with my Icom 756 Pro III, and with my Kenwood TS-570D I use a Elecraft KPA500.

As I stated...I rarely use either amp unless there is one heck of a pileup and I need that contact for my logs.
