They apparently were not widely known, successful, or poor advertisers.
Although I have to say the name "Metron" sorta sounds familiar, I never
heard of them.
So far what little I've found Transworld built the amp back in the early
70's. The only comments http://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/2832 I've
found were all positive. The amp looks like a typical VHF,UHF solid
state design, except it was meant for 160 through 10 meters. Suggested
retail was $600 which would make it between $1200 and $1800 in today's
There's a write up about it and Transworld in the amplifiers section of
which isn't quite so glowing.
Google is your friend... but you did get my curiosity up.
