    Default Looking for small linear, are there any made or in kit form?

    I have a G11 sdr that I have been playing with and would like to add a 100w pa to it.
    Only has 10w out on all bands. tight now it I only need 80-10m
    anyone know of any kits or amps out there? Most of the stuff I've seen is this c.b. radio
    junk without the proper filters in them.
    I've seen a few rm Italy amps that have band pass filters but I'm not real sure on the quality.

    There are a couple of "legal" amateur amplifiers on the market for this.

    One is the Ten Tec 418: http://www.tentec.com/products/Model...Amplifier.html

    Forgot about that one, I'll have to see if there are any out there used.
    I think they just came out with it though. So that could be a little hard to find used ATM.

    This one's a bit lower powered, but is also legit and legal for sale in the U.S.: http://www.tokyohypower.com/hl-45b.html

    If you want to build one yourself:

    These boards would only be for an experienced builder. You need to integrate them into a workable unit. This company has been in business for a long time. The designs came from Motorola's applications notes.

    Your right that Ten Tec is a joke as far as price, there are several made overseas not kits. Elecraft will soon be releasing there 100w kit amp not sure on date its for the KX3 but will work fine with any QRP rig.

    G11 has been great so far, It really needs a good soundcard to function to its best.
    So far it hears better than my Ten-Tec jupiter.
    The kit isn't hard to assemble and the support has been top notch.
    I plan on adding the new multi band filter board and add a 100w pa to it.
    I made a few PSK contacts with it the other night while I was playing around setting it up.
    5watts got me to Angola on my 20m hex beam
    I still have to finish the PA calibration and tx image rejection.
    The RX image rejection has been spot on, I ended up tunring off wbir. It seemd to increase images on rx that aren't there when it's dissabled.
