    A 100W 6m amplifier shouldn't be too difficult to homebrew.  Check 
Communications Concepts for several amplifier designs that cover HF-6m.  
They have a 20W driver amp you can get the parts for $103 
(http://www.communication-concepts.com/an779L.htm) or for $302, you can 
get 10MHz through 150MHz and 300W with this 
(http://www.communication-concepts.com/ar313.htm) amplifier.
