    All - thanks for all the replys - I really appreciate it.

    If there are no other recommendations I'd like to declare the thread closed .

    Best regards,

    Hi

    Good luck with your choise, and whatever you choose, may it have years of use without troubles.
    And may it fulfill the things you expected from it.

    Well,

    I decided to 'fake the watts' - I am building a hex beam to get my DX gains thru directionality. In other words, I could not decide and got talked into putting up a beam antenna instead until I decide I still need MOR PWR!

    Wise choice.

    Like the old story about the traveling salesman who picked up the native American Indian hitchhiker.

    The Indian notices a brown bag on the seat next to the salesman, and finally asks, "What in bag?"

    The driver says, "It's a bottle of whiskey. I got it for my wife."

    Indian pauses a while, then says, "Good trade."

    Even the SB-200 (2x 572B's) is not a bad choice, if recapped (usually necessary) and a few mods, desirable or not necessary. It won't put out legal limit, but @ less than 100 Watts input, it will still put out 600-750 Watts. (Minus the black widders, ciggie smoke, and other nasties, that is; mouse t_rds not withstanding.. Don't ask me how I know; you don't want to..)
