    Ameritron AL-80B single 3-500Z tube amplifier for sale. Produces 750-800 watts output in CW mode on all bands (see pictures). In excellent physical and operating condition. Comes from a non-smoking environment. I’ve owned it since 2011 and have probably put less than 20 hours on it, operating in one net on 80 meter SSB. Wired for 120VAC, never had any problem operating off a dedicated 20 amp 120V line.

    In case you are not familiar with this amplifier here is a one para description from Ameritron.

    “You get up to a full kilowatt PEP output from a whisper quiet desktop linear. Its a compact 8.5" x 15.5" x 14.5" and plugs into your nearest 120VAC outlet. Covers all bands 160-15 meters, including WARC and MARS (user modified for 10/12 meters with license). You get up to 1000 watts output on SSB, 800 watts output on CW, 500 watts output on RTTY, an extra heavy duty power supply, genuine 3-500 tube, nearly 70% efficiency, tuned input, Pi/Pi-L output, inrush current protection, multi-voltage transformer, dual Cross-Needle meters, QSK compatibility”

    Really don’t want to ship the amplifier but will drive within 75 miles of Boston. Can be picked up and demoed at home QTH in Dover MA

    Standard disclaimer – all sales are final will not be DOA, no returns. Come test it yourself.

    $825 (cash) local pickup/deliver
