Re: AM-6154/AM-6155 Amps available--any good?



Randy,
I have 3 of these amps. They are not very hard to convert at all. 432 is the
most difficult but you get a
pretty big bang for the buck. List below shows what I get out of mine into a
dummy load with Bird wattmeter.

2 meters = AM6154  10 watts in gives 600 pep out
220 MHz = AM6155  10 watts in gives 600 pep out
432 MHz = AM6155  10 watts in gives 550 pep out

These amps were originally used at 10 watts in/50 watts out continuous AM
