Jon, I am not too technical but I can say this about my Titan. I can usually
run about 20 to 30 watts drive on 80 -20 meters and see plenty of grid
(depending on the setting). On 10-15 meters even less drive shows ig. If I
run 50 watts drive into titan on 20 meters, I am putting out nearly 1200 watts
with around 25MA of grid. At 10 watts on any band, I usually don't have much
though. Once I get to 20 or 30 watts is when I see needle movement.
BTW, you will love that Titan. It loafs at 1300 watts out all day. Just a
little noisy on the blower. (I can live with it). 73 and good luck...Steve
