    When I first saw this amp for sale of on the sale site I thought some over powered Ham had lost his mind building an amp that used two Eimac 3CX3000A7 tubes. But Then I looked closer and saw that there is a CB radio next to it. Nice piece of work but would hate to buy it have it taken away by the feds.

    Why would the Feds take it away?
    Legal as ice cream to own it if you want to buy it.
    I have faith that as a licensed operator, you would never drive it past legal limit on Ten Meters...and think of the headroom the toobs will have <More audio>
    Lol

    ( This is just a random thought, but it looks like 5150 in Malibu, Ca just sold His Amp, what? Back to the AL-1200 ? No More Obama Radio on 27.385 ?)

    If you look at the pics it clearly says "unit 5150" and "Bojangles built" on the front of the unit. Just one commercial broadcast tube like a Eimac 3CX3000A7 is probably WAY more than most anyone needs....but it sure would be kick ass to have all the kwatts sitting there if you get the itch :p:p

    i don't know for sure but I think this amp might be just a little small for my needs. I am needing something bigger for 2 meter FM repeater nets.
