I purchased one and installed it on an experimental Navy ship.  It was 
connected to a 28 foot mast on deck and was adjusted to auto tune and 
transmit at 500 watts.  It ran very well for about a year and then the fault 
indicator came on.  We discover that the connection to the antenna on the 
deck corroded enough to short circuit the output.  We reworked the 
connection and the amp was happy again.

The only problem that we had was an occasional trip due to a spike in the 
initial radio output.  Some radios spike the transmit power before settling 
to the nominal power level.  This amp will fault on the spike.
