Hi Gene, and fellow amp'ers.
I have been using a QSK-5 for several years here with great satisfaction.
I bought it, an Icom 706 MK II, and a Henry SS-750 amp at the same time.
All have been working flawlessly together..I call it my "12 volt kilowatt."
This set-up is several times faster than the best vacuum relays available.
The speed is limited solely by the capability of the transceiver being used.
I did go ahead and spring for the fan kit, as things are "hot as hell" here in
Texas in the summer. I use it mobile on occasion with a small Radio Shack
