I’ll look into the skeleton slot — thanks. Now callsigns… If you reside in
the People’s Democratic Republic of Canada, perhaps I can arrange for a
transfer of VE7ASS to you/your wife upon my demise. You might be interested in
some of my other calls too: VE7POO and VE7SPY. POO and ASS are kind of a
matched set so take both if you can. Of course you don’t seem to disclose your
call, so I don’t know where you are <g>.

And @ Jim - ve7rf opines:
## Since Jerome only wants the amp to work on 80-40-30m, I was going to
suggest he simply move the 20m tap towards the 40m portion, but Vic beat me to
it. His SB-200, once tweaked correctly, should easily be able to put out
600w on CW, measured at the amp itself. But I believe jerome wants to operate
some data modes on 30M band.... which the SB-200 was never designed for.
Maybe 300-500 watts max, depending on duty cycle.
Jim is absolutely correct about my intent — I’ve been on 30 with FT8 usually
picking times when the band is ‘dead’ — when only weak ones are barely visible
on the waterfall, and there and then, the difference between a barefoot 75w and
an actual 200+w is substantial.
