You know I am in the market for a solid state HF amp with medium power. So this link got my immediate attention. Thoughts?
- It looks nice.
- No six meters. Not that I am active on that band (don’t even have an antenna), but you never know.
- Output on the low side with a mere 500W CW but then again it’s only for radio #2 to facilitate QSOs there with minimal interruption of the running process on radio #1.
- €1800? My first reaction: too much money for too little power. Then again it’s 500 Euro less than what the Elecraft KPA3 amplifier would cost to bring it to my doorstep.
- It’s Italian…
So together with the elusive ACOM 800S and the KPA3, there’s this Italian little amp. The Finish Juma PA1000 doesn’t seem to advance either. That is: there is no online update on the project. So far the ACOM seems to suit my needs the best. The anticipated price of about 2600 Euro for 800W and with 6m makes it ideal. But I’m waiting and no updates there either.
