    Just checked E-Bay, a matched pair of real Toshiba 2879 finals was 129 bucks. That would probably drive the price of an N2 up 100 bucks.[/QUOTE]
    the 2970n2 doesnt use 2sc2879, it uses irf520n to220 style which you can clearly see in the pic above. afaik only the 69ffc4 uses 2sc2879 and i doubt very many of those even sold.

    Yes I understand that. I was referring to the part about he did not believe the supply of 2879 finals has dried up. This was in part why RCI went to mosfets. If they still made a 2970 with 2879's it would be a very expensive radio until every last one was used up.

    I have an RCI 2970N2. Recently it developed a problem. After transmission and mic is un-keyed the radio continues to draw 35+amps. To stop the power draw I have to cycle the power supply power and radio works normal until another transmission is complete and stock mic is un-keyed. Any ideas on the problem?

    It sounds like it's going into oscillation and keeping the relay engaged. There could be an issue with the amp board, or it may not like your antenna system. It might be something as simple as changing a jumper, but then again, it might be that deep, dark rabbit hole.
