Hi guys, I'm sending this from the airport waiting for my flight home from Symposium. As I discussed with a few of you here, I have just this weekend arranged a discounted price for AMSAT members on what looks to be a real deal on an L-band amplifier. I'll let the seller's webpage provide the details, but he has indicated that he will sell these amps, tuned for 1269 if so desired, for $195 dollars including shipping (lower 48 US). I'm ordering one this week, and I believe Mark Hammond N8MH has one already. I'd like to thank Mark for turning me on to these, and being the early adopter. Check them out at:
We need 5 people to get this pricing, so please drop me a line if you order one.

Just a note to tell you I bought one of these from KJ6KO about 3-years ago for 1296. With 29.5 volts and 10w drive I am seeing 70w output. Since the amplifier is broadband tuned it may work at both 1296 and 1269. You probably should contact Greg for his experience in converting these amps; he would know how wide a band they perform over. I heartily recommend these amps!
