>>> Both. But the amps I witnessed were not SB-220's or had 3-500Z's.
>>> I would still prefer to stick to the SB-220 and related clones since they

>>> out of 10 SB-220's that I buy have some sort of switch damage...which is
>>> why they are for sale...cheap. In almost every case, the owners say the
>>> amp was tuned and operating perfectly fine and the switch arced for no
>>> obvious reason.
Sounds familiar, Carl.
>>Carl, consider the large conclusion you are leaping to here in
>>accepting the guy's personal "opinion". A Ham you have never worked
>>next to, and probably never even met before, operating a station you
>>have never seen, and with equipment you probably aren't even aware
>>of, tells you "I always tuned my amp correctly".
Not Invented Here syndrome.
>>It would be more productive to discuss facts, rather than opinions of
>>unknown individuals who are judging their own equipment and skills
>>as "nothing wrong with anything else".
>I asked a very simple question Tom that you seem unable to answer so
>instead surround it with noise.
Seems to me like ye olde smokescreen.
