I'd be interested in that - will have the same setup (using FT-857 at present) and my PA must be faulty, take 40W in to get about 90W out :-)
so need to find a circuit and someone who will look at it for me.
David, please share any info.

The actual RF circuits are quite straightforward and I've repaired several amps. What is more difficult, however, is tracing the bias network and protection circuitry. A search on the Internet reveals more requests for information than answers. I seem to remember someone was selling circuit details on eBay over the summer so information is available somewhere. I suspect that much of the information will be generic from one BNOS PA to another even though the operating frequencies and model numbers may vary. If anyone has any circuit information on any of the amplifiers I'd appreciate a response to my email address. I could even post it on my web site so it could be shared.
