If you dont need 160 the SB-200 is an economical choice. They work fine on 
12/17M also. It is not an amp for RTTY or digital modes. The price stays low 
since over 10,000 were sold.

I buy around 50 a year and many still have original 60's-70's date code 
tubes and put out full power. I dont think that you will ever see an 
Ameritron or Alpha running that long on original tubes; they push them a lot 

They have an internal jumper to switch between 120/240VAC and at around 33# 
they dont collapse your desk.

You can compare them to the Ford Model A or the 64-67 Mustang. Millions 
sold, almost as many are still on the road and new parts are readily 
available. Not the best cars built but they did what they were built to do; 
get you from Point A to Point B and back again.
