I also have an old Polmar base amp with 5 8950 tubes in it, output depends on much I drive it with I've seen it do over 500 on sideband

I run... well all of it is below already in my signature. But I do have a klv550. I hook it up from time to time. I looked on the net to get spec's for it and whatnot couldnt find any info on it. when the klv550 is hooked up the fans are pretty loud in it. I can hear it in the other room. thats why I dont run it much. I like my fatboy1500. and no its not a person, just a amp. lol.

I run a RF-110A military amplifier, driver is pair of 8122s and final is a pair of 4CX1500Bs. The unit on the bottom of the rack is the power supply RF-124 for the RF110A which weighs over 200lbs.
You can drive this amp to full power with a signal generator only requires 100MW of drive. I found the RF-110A on ebay, a surplus electronics dealer was selling it, I could see the finals from the listing photos.... got it for $260 plus freight. I took a chance I figured that I could at least recoup my money selling the tubes. To my surprise it showed up complete with all the tubes and had been run less than 1100 hours as read on the elapse time meter. You just don't know what will show up on ebay!

Wait a minute. This is an OLD topic, but timeless. Did you say Stargunn? Tell us more. I've often thought their quality looked awesome but questioned the design. Their beam is a joke but I'd love to hear from you if you're having good luck with their stuff. I looked up the Jammer and just saw pics, kinda looks like a coil loaded 10k style with some radials for more loading or something. If you can offer a good review or shed some light on them, please start a new topic as many would be curious. Thanks and have a great weekend.

ok i will try to start a new topic but just to throw it out there, i have ran many diff antennas in my day. and i know alot of people will chop my head off about this but.. I LOVE IT.. it is one of the best antennas i have ever ranthe recive is amazing the tx is great. i do run 1200 watts rated avg out of it and its tx is far superior to most ant i have ran. wilsons 10k was good but i would love to pin it up against one in a even clean shootout. yes it was very hard to match, and my buddys was even harder to match, but we both did get 1.1 to 1.2 on three diff meters ratshack dosy and bird.. the little directional piece does help a little to throw a little more tx in the forward direction do to the theroy i think that it pulls some of the rf field down toarwd the roof top of the truck insted of evenlly around omni..but i would not really say (Directioal).. the jammer is not the beam, i have my concerns about his beam, but the jammer is real quality with quality metarials i feel. i dont really like his hocky puck mount though, but the ant is great. i would recomend it to anyone who has a little knolage about ant theroy and use.. not for any amatures though, as long as you can get him to answer the phone and actually ship your order.. but well worth the wait.. ny 221 northeast cornrer, feel free to copy and paste this to start a new topic if possable, thanks catch ya on the bowl ch 6

New 4 MOSFET FET450 Power Handling 500 Watts $250 ish - I Li

Post by eGroupSales » Friday, 16 July 2010, 13:24 PM

I'm loving my MOSFET Amps by the Palomar guy in Houston. Four ERF7530 MOSFETs. The same one you find in the Magnum 380, 680, 980. They'll handle a 20 watt dead key and 100 watts of swing. For those like me running a Galaxy 93T and a Connex 4300, that's an amp that will handle the output without having to jump to an 8 pill.

$250 for almost 500 watts. I ain't complaining.

For 11M mobile: Either a HR2510 or a OmegaForce S45HP driving either a heavily modified Palomar Elite 900HD or an Ameritron ALS500M with remote kit. (Both will do a solid 500 W out.)

In the base, (11M) Either another 2510 or another OmegaForce S45HP, or if I want to get funky and nostalgic, a Heath DX-100 AM transmitter (plate modulated, runs 125W out). These can drive either a Hammond HL-2000 amp (pair of 3-500G) or the Drake L4B (another pair of 3-500G).

I'm also a ham, so I have TONS of ham gear, lot's of boat-anchors, and a few heavy-duty linears. If you're curious about the ham gear, just ask.

I get around 12,000 to 14,000 rms bird and around 30,000 to 35,000 peak bird And I do drop the *Censored*. I built the 3 and the 8pill. Stickman AKA Mr DaveMade and I built the 32pill. Stickman and Dave from the real Dave Made in N.J. built the 3000 tube box at Daves shop with me sitting back in all, watching two masters at work. as far as I know there is no one better Dave and Stickman. O ya don't want that Dave Made Junk comming out of N.C. LOL. I use a General Lee Radio with a 227swing kit to dive it all.
This guy had better find a new what meter. HAHAH a 3cx3000 is capable at tops 8000 watts PEP the tube is actually rated at only 3000 watts 100% duty cycle same for a 32 pill at the most maybe 9000 watts. HAHAHAH 35,000. Really be honest with yourself and quit trying to impress everyone on here
