Take a serious look at the Elecraft KXPA100. It will work FB with
any QRP transceiver. If you have a KX3, it will integrate quite
nicely and you will have a complete 100 watt station. Add the
KXAT100 tuner for a complete solution.
The KXPA100 will autosense frequency, as will the tuner. 5 watts
drive will give you 100 watts out.
As I indicated, it can be used with any QRP rig, but if you spring
for the KX3 later, you will have a fully integrated 100 watt
After a few days
of being a bit under the weather, I'm feeling fine and
have resumed "fine tuning" my qrp set-up.
One thing I am
considering is giving my Icom 718 to my son and just
going with an amp to augment my LD5 when necessary.
I've been running the ICOM at 50W just to compare it
with 100W...not much diffference. So, if I could get a
linear that would boost my 5W to around 50, it would
suit me just fine. My new Hexbeam will make up the
difference (when I can get it up)...right now I just
using low wires and a hamstick dipole.
an amp for qrp? 40/30/20/17/15 CW and SSB needed...
May we all have
a good June...and no more flooding for those of us in SW
