    J Pole / portable antenna?

    Ed Fong will make you one that meets (most of) those requirements. It can be encapsulated in PVC or a Rollup - https://edsantennas.weebly.com I have both a DBJ-1 (pvc) and DBJ-2 (rollup) and have no complaints.

    Palomar 400 Elite

    Assuming it is a 4xSD1446 amp (which most of the references say it should be), it's a 300 watt amp. The numbers you are seeing lead me to believe that harmonics/splatter is where the higher numbers on the meter are coming from. See...

    Mega Watt power supplies

    I have been running a 36 amp version since 2014. It's probably been running 24/7 about 90% of the time I have owned it. I have had to open it once to clean out and lube the fan.

    Yes, AM consists of upper and lower sidebands combined with a carried frequency, so that would be why you can hear them.

    No more free ham ticket?

    I'd like to see some of that 50 bucks go to RFI reduction. Like the fee, all I see is my meter go from bad to worse as more and more non-compliant devices spew RFI.

    A Starduster would seem to meet your original requirements, and potentially your secondary w/ regard to radials.

    2 1446 box

    2x1446 = two 80 watt transistors. Assuming 160 watts clean output, 160 divided 4 = 40 watts, which would be a good dead key target. Now, swing .. assuming AM .. you can work backwards from the 160 watts target for PEP, assuming you have a true PEP reading meter.

    Mine picked up a tick after about 5/6 years, but that was due to being in a dusty location. Some compressed air and a little lube and right as rain.
