What is the general consensus about the Acom 1010 HF Amplifier? Have heard some good things elsewhere but wanted to see what you guys thought? I have had a couple of amps, but FT8 killed them. Perhaps I just either shouldn't have been using them on FT8 at all, or I was just overdoing it. Either way, I'd like an amp for FT8 and wanted to get some feedback about this. I can take any honest critiques. I am willing to learn how to properly use an amp, whether solid state or tube. I figured the Acom 1010 was pretty rugged, with one modern tube and manual tuning, with some excellent protections. I would rather buy new, as I have found that used amp have a short life (at least with me hihi) Thoughts?
