Several of these amplifiers have been built and exhibit similar performance. Al has been using his amplifier on each of the HF bands, logging well over 500 contacts in 18 months. Signal reports indicate a noticeable improvement in readability (about two S units on average) over his 5 W rig. No indications of instability, CW key clicks or distortion on SSB have been reported. To make it easy for you to duplicate this project, PC boards and parts kits are available, all at a cost of about $100!
