    I want to know where i can get a steel tube amp. I would like to be able to find them on web...I want to use a super six elkin to drive it. I'd like to be able to do around 5000 to 10000 watts. I will listen to all suggestions. I will be saving for this project so i need to get a close price. Thanks for all the help.

    Only good can come from this in the form of an education for others when he smokes his big steel or worse he sticks his finger where it shouldn't be.

    I hear that if you run that much power into one of the magical EH antennas you can time travel.

    Height is might on HF.

    Antenna, antenna, antenna.

    A good yagi, high in the air. Then if you still need to add anything else add it after you put that antenna way up in the air 70 feet or higher.

    Steel is not used in transmitting tubes.

    I had to replace an swrpill this weekend, no rhyme or reason I can see for it to go but I may need to check my bias voltage which hasn't been checked since me,bob and danny boy originally built that "box"/amplifier.

    It went dead collector to emmiter but showed fine base to collector.
