Re: KPA 500 Low power out.
Ever since I started running the data modes with crappy downsized antennas I have a bandpass repair under my belt. If you are somewhat confident in your soldering abilities it's easy with Elecraft equipment. When you open it up the problem component should be easy to find, and as it's an Elecraft, so the support is excellent. I had a burned out inductor and Elecraft was able to tell me the Digikey part number for the Toroid, and also how many turns. Their support made the repair project a pleasure to do. Good luck with it....toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

No problem, that set of graphs will give you what my amp did when it was new... Good luck getting your amp up to power. I am following this thread as it may at some time apply to me...
