OK, I have a Ranger 2970N2 that I got new and had it turned down to a 5 watt deadkey for the Texas Star that I have and have not put inline yet. Got to scratching my head and was wondering with all the swing the 2970 has, will the Texas Star last? Should I go with a Davemade 4 pill(not for sideband)? Will the 500 last on sideband? Should I shoot myself for turning down the 2970? Any help would be appreciated.
