I have two amps for 1296:
1)  Made by DEMI, model 2318PA (uses a M57762 module) with 15w-SSB/18w-CW
output for 0.75w drive.  Kit cost=$165
2)  A 60w+ amp by KJ6KO which produces 2.5w/45w or 6w/70w output.  Cost=$200

I drive my amps with a DEMI xvtr which outputs 2.5w (max).
The DEMI amp is small and would antenna mount nice (but not wx-proof).  The
KJ6KO amp is big/heavy and requires 30-vdc /8-amps.  But half the cost of
DEMI's 60w amp.  I run mine stacking two Astron 13.8 volt PS to get 28-volts.
