I was considering making a 6M Yagi and
still would like to but realizing my time
constraints with upcoming ankle/leg

turnkey antenna and put it together on the
roof and just be done with it. Until I
relocate to a better place to put up
antennas have a tower.

It was suggested to the me that the 5
element Cushcraft A505S is a good choice
but I see it has a 1KW limit and I want
something with a 1.5KW limit as I have a
1.5KW King Conversions amp. Has anyone any
experience in converting this antenna into
one that takes 1.5KW?

  Not me.
  I have one of these.  The only power limiting thing that I am aware
of is the gamma match components.
If you replaced the tubing, dielectric, inner conductor and clamps with
those twice the diameter you should be golden.
