I'm calling BS...look at the list, then look at the pictures closely.
I asked him why pics do not match invoice. Will see what he says.
He responded, added new photo of the back with the new SO-239. Photos were taken before rework done.
dont understand all this
I have never actually heard anyone say anything bad about Dicks work on Alphas.
He IS da man with Alphas.
I was just thinking someone was full of crap but it makes sense it was before it was restored.
BTW, there is a Dick Byrd restored Alpha 78 on QTH right now ...$1500
The first thing I noticed was the 1.5 million watts.
I can't resist,.......................
Dem be BYRD watts
Do the alpha amps deserve the accolades they normally get? They look extremely well-built, but I know little to nothing about amplifiers. They obviously weren't built with 11 meters in mind. That much I know. There are many amateur radio amplifiers that seem to be made with the highest of workmanship, and Technology available, but read some bad reports on some of those high priced amplifiers.
Are they worth the very high cost of a new or second-hand one? My question is directed with amateur radio use in mind, of course.
I always stop and look at the photos of the alpha amplifiers that I see up for bid or sale on eBay, and they look like they were made by artisans. I'm not sure if that equates to a good piece of equipment.
A few years ago, at the Dayton Hamvention, there was an Alpha 9500 amplifier putting out 3000 watts plus sending "CQ Dayton" into a dummy load.
