    I have for sale Ameritron's famous "desktop kilowatt" amp, the AL-80B.

    Ameritron rates this amp at 800W CW and 1000W PEP SSB. You can see the forward power reading of 800W I captured driving it with CW in the attached pix.

    The AL-80B uses a single 3-500Z tube which is still going strong. It will be pulled and shipped separately unless you request otherwise.

    I am the second owner of this amp, serial #15575. I've had several amps over the past eight years since buying this one, and it's been used about 15% of the time. Just bought an ALS-1306 and while I love the glow of that tube, I'm going solid-state because I'm mostly contesting and tuning slows things down a bit.

    The amp is clean and working well. It has been used in a non-smoking environment.

    The AL-80B sells for $1499 new, this one will be shipped in the US for $1095. If you're also interested in the QSK-5 external box, which I'm listing separately, let me know and we'll work a deal. The QSK-5 gives you full CW break-in with the AL-80B.
