I know you haven't gotten an answer to your exact question, my apologies.  I 
have seen data that questions the Mirage amplifiers, so I would ask specific 
questions before I purchased one of those.  I know Elecrafters has a good 
reputation, they offer a 100W kit for their rigs that I believe can be 
installed in a seperate box and be used with other transceivers.  I don't know 
its frequency range, though.  Henry Amplifier makes 100W amplifiers for HF, 
UHF/VHF, but they seem pricy for 100 watt output.

I am sure when Steve, Tom and some of the other amplifier guys get a chance, 
you will get a true answer to your question.  In the mean time, you might look 
at Henry and Ameritron.
