Hi Bud,

I have a 1208 and the manual. You shouldn't drive it with more than 7 or 8W, of 
14MHz input power. It has a different maximum input power level than the 2m 
transverter someone mentioned. I use 4 to 5W drive during Field Day and 
everything works nicely. I get about 5W out. During sporadic-E openings using a 
3-element yagi I can work from coast to coast  The fact that I am at 7300' 
during Field Day helps!

I am not sure the best way to go about having the manual copied; it has many 
pages. The manual does have a spiral bound edge so it will lay flat on a copy 
machine. I suppose a place like Kinkos could copy it, but they are rather 
pricey. I doubt Ten-Tec would have a problem with it being copied since the 
manual is unavailable through them.

Presently, I am away from home in Seattle and won't be home for about a week. 
That is where my manual is right now.
