With a uniden grant xl dead key 2 watts swing 7 AVG (20 peak bird) box does about 75 avg (about 175 bird peak). Video of this claim below. Since i posted this originally a few months back, box has undergone a few updates by a licensed and experience tube amplifier tech. Before and after pics included. What was done? Check below:

    (2) silver caps changed out and replaced with a better value (see pic) old parts included. Old value 5 MFD. New value: 22uf.

    (2) wires added for fan operation.

    cracked plastic on meter replaced.

    Cooling fan added on top of unit. Cover was not drilled but tie straps were used. Fan is on TIGHT! Fan works when you turn switch on standby or on, fan comes on. Tie straps were used just in case new owner wants to remove fan and keep the look original.

    Box makes a cool high voltage sound when keyed. This is normal operation.

    Here are the before pics:
