The matched set of four 811's was on RF Parts. I got a great deal locally on two amps and a like new MFJ 986 3kw tuner. All three for $800. Both amps work great and I couldn't be happier although my ham fund is wiped out. I'm on vacation this week and I'm going to play a lot of radio.:D

I'm seeing 750 watts out of the 811 on 20 meters and a little over 800 on the SB-200. I had to make a patch cable to go with the original rca input jack on the SB-200 but I can key both amps and my radio with a Heil dual foot switch until I locate an 8 pin din to make the amp cable for the 1200. The soft-key mod should get here this week so I can key the SB-200 as well with the same cable.

Thanks! I am liking the SB-200. Just hope I can find a spare set of tubes before they become unobtanium...lol Here's the final picture of the shack. I have a little wire management to do and another antenna to hang but I'm happy with it.

Looks awesome! You are going to have some fun, that's for sure. Like the glass of red wine, too. Lol

We just got into the new house completely last weekend and along with a few other side jobs that need doing I started on the shack yesterday. Unpacked some of my mics and ran some Davis rf Bury-Flex and their RG8X sized direct bury coax through the ceiling and what a pain that was.

I'll do some more unpacking throughout the week and figure where my antennas are going up in the yard. I'm also waiting for one of the W8AMZ /ZS6BKW multiband dipoles to get here. It's slow going but I'll get there. The three most important aspects of the shack are already there. It's in a finished basement (man-cave) and a nice clean, pre-built space, bathroom is 5 feet away and there's a refrigerator in the next room :)

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

  • @ kb9ghn:
    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
