Hello to All: Don't know if this subject has been run up the flag pole yet here on QRZ.com or not. Here is a link to the ARRL's News Article on same: http://www.arrl.org/news/fcc-invite...minate-15-db-gain-limit-on-amateur-amplifiers The elimination of the 15db Gain Limit on Amateur Amplifiers does not seem like a good idea to me, at least for HF amplifiers, and may be asking for trouble. The argument that amplifiers “inherently capable of considerably more than 15 dB of amplification would make them a suitable match for low-power transceivers now on the market having output power on the order of 10 W" seems pretty lame. Is it their real intent to sell amps to Hams? Or, is it really their intent to sell these amps to CB'ers? Most Hams, who use output power on the order of 10 W are doing so because they want QRP and not QRO. IMO, and you know what is said about those, amps made to develop full legal output (1500 W) with only 10 W drive is not a good idea. Seems to me that they are looking to market those amps to CB'ers where there are already too many people running too much power and causing too much interference. Anyone like to weigh in and try to convince me that this is a good idea?
