Certainly wasted at hf, and I'd have worries about ruggedness at
lower frequencies. Its a 1200W transistor for 1200W peak out with
digital radio or TV signals, which have a lower average power -
but you need some linearity and headroom to keep the IMD under
There's lots of info. from N1DPM on a cw version for 144MHz on the
