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>.

More info about how Canada assigns call-letters for the amateur service can be

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.
