    ROFLMAO!! You're new aren't you? It IS an 11m amp thinly disguised as a 10m ham amp.

    It was pretty easy, they did not test in that area. RM specifies 28 to30 MHz.

    And the FCC knows just as we do that there is a brick wall bandpass filter from 25.999.999 MHz.to 27.999.999 MHz. so why bother testing right?

    I would think so mudfoot, look at all the chassis screws I doubt they only put one on the coax connection points. At least they got a fan on them now. Probably already been said but oh well. Another 11m amp in disguise.

    That's expensive, $729. It has 4 MRF-455 which I do think are 60 watt devices. Compared to KXPA100 100w Amplifier with Optional Internal ATU which is 749.

    Indeed it does have two screws, one each in opposite corners. You just cannot see them in the photo above.

    which of course, means every CB radio operator will jump all over themselves to get one.

    They need to generate as much bleedover as possible. J'in Fer Good Buddy :)

    I’ve used the 7505 from the big truck. It’s back at the house for now.
