I hade a Nitro 300 made by Transel. nice units and mine was modded a bit but still couldn't do 1kw.lol
you can try a Heathkit SB220. I have one an keyup at 500 and swing 1000 or more on 11 meters it has to EZ-500 tubes in it.
I sure there be more posts on better tube amps....
The best would be a DX-3 from Emtron but they are hard to find. They are made in Australia and rate about the best of the best.They do sell factory direct however.
your nitro would make a good driver
lol sweet. a sb220 with a tophat
geezzz, If you want to run that kind of power, why don't you do legal. Get your ticket and get off the chicken band.
Just my opinion I may be wrong.
Very nice amplifiers but they are very pricey compared to a Heathkit SB-220.
I agree 'Doc that there are no 'free lunches'. But I personally can't justify spending that kind of money on an amplifier that will be used strictly on 11 meters. I think the less pricey Heathkit SB-220 is sufficient for use on 11 meters.
Yeah those amps are a bit pricy for 11m use. Oh how I would love to have either one in my ham shack however,especially the Emtron.
You want a REAL kick? Try talking with 100 watts from Nova Scotia to Rodrigues Island via long path WHILE MOBILE. It's a mere 15,000 miles. Been there.Done that. Am ecstatic about it. Of course being on 20m at the time helps.
