OK, so I figure only people who know what a CM-50 is will read this, which probably means other FAA people.
Here's the question. When we finish scrapping all the CM-200 equipment (Nexcom changeout) and all the CM-50's and -51's go to the surplus market, will we be able to make decent ham amps for HF/VHF/UHF out of them? I just stacked 16 up in a storeroom at one of my VOR sites, and I had to just look at 'em and wonder, "What if ..."
For one thing, what if you fed 100 watts into the input rather than the usual 10?
I'm also aching to open one up someday. Even though we have the TI's, I still think they're squirrels in there.
