    Since these amplifiers are manufactured and shipped from Bulgaria, not surprising that it ships with 240 VAC European cord set.

    ACOM amplifier uses an IEC C14 receptacle on its back panel — SO a NEMA 6-15P to an IEC C13 “Cord Set” or “Whip” is required.

    Your Canadian reseller (RadioWorld and Augustica Tech are only authorized dealers for Canada)

    They should be ordering without cordset from Acom AND supplying the proper NEMA 6-15P compliant 240 VAC cord for North America.

    Not to worry any more. I was able to just plug it in to 120v 15 amp and was able to TX at almost 600 watts. On Monday I was able to install a 240v 20 amp service to my shack and now I'm pushing 1000 watts like expected. Only takes about 35 watts of drive to get it there. Have to be careful when using digital mode now.

    I had a 220v line ran to my shack for the amplifier.

    The Acom's are a great amp, I had the Acom 1010 and now own the Acom 1500, best amp I've owned by far. Good luck with yours :)
