Re: help on a klm amp



Hi,

I also had the same problem with a Mirage power amp. It was feeding back
1W of power at about 500 MHz to my radio. I've sent it back for repair
and I'm using an RF Concepts 4-110 in its place.

How common are power amp problems? Are there any recommended manufacturers?
