Maybe the next logical step is to convince Ashhar that instead of
a new radio, his next offering should be the uBitAMP.

There seems to be many amplifiers on ebay that put
out about 70 watts for around $ 25 to $ 50. Those are just
circuit boards with parts mounted or kits. No filtering that you
would have to add and a TX/RX switch and box to put it in. Going
much about 10 watts would seem to knock it out of the portable
weight limit . I was talking with some friends on 80 meters
this morning and using the 16 watts I get out (after the
transistor mods) to drive a Drake L4B amp to somewhat over 150
watts out and getting good reports.
I am glad this rig is on the market as is. Gives me a
chance to make some modifications and my main goal is to use
it with some transverters that need about 5 to 15 watts of
drive depending on which one I use.
I am not much for designing things, but do enjoy playing
around with others ideas.
