## How much power can u get out of a LK-550 or LK-800..with a big xfmr ?
I dont even know what tube or how many many tubes were in those amps.
What are we talking abt here, like 3 x 3cpx800a7s putting out 3.5 kw or what ?
I wouldnt get wound up abt a lousy 3 – 4db esp on 160m band. IMO, they should
increase the limit on 160m. Thats one band where some extra.. oomph would work,
esp with sky high noise levels. Noise level with typ ssb rx filter band widths typ results
in high noise levels... making life a bitch on 160m ssb.
