There was some discussion on the Ten-Tec Reflector a few weeks back
about the desire for Ten-Tec to produce a high-power HF linear amp kit.
The idea was sort of shot down because of the concern that kitbuilders
might endanger themselves with the high voltage power to the tubes and
Why couldn't Ten-Tec offer a solid-state, high power HF linear in kit
form? How about something similar to the Hercules, offering about 500
watts out? The kit builder would only be exposed to 13.8 volts. The
power supply could be offered separately in pre-built form.
There's already some small companies offering similar solid state HF
amp kits. I'd like to see Ten-Tec add such an amp to its kit line.
What do the rest of you think?
