Well, after 1 year due to a move, I just got my HF antenna up in air today. Winters in MI are a little tough or I would have had the antenna installed earlier. No time last fall due to work. I am retired now. I been talking on 75 meters tonight. So much fun. The AL-811 makes about 800 watts PEP out with 80 watts drive. Grid current is about 100ma on peaks. I assume ok.
