      1000 watts OUTPUT..on a pair of 572B's? Impossible! (Fact, I don't even think you could do a Kw input-tubes would melt.)
      Better check your specifications. That being said, IF the power transformer is OK, it's a good price for a 200.
      And..that's quite a NICE shack for being in the hobby for 6+ months. You did quite well. (Good Elmer?)

      1,000W out of an SB-200? Not in this universe. Time to get a decent power meter, or use the one you have with a good dummy load to improve accuracy.

      The SB-200 power supply does not support 1000W out, let alone the tubes (which are only rated at 320W plate dissipation for the pair - less than a single 3-500Z). The SB-200 is rated at 1,000 watts CW INPUT (~50% duty cycle) to the tubes, 1,200W SSB peak, to its two T160L/572B tubes and will put out from 500W to mid-600's, depending on band and state of tune. At full sustained output, the tube envelopes will soften and sag after a relatively short time at full power, making this amp less than ideal for RTTY, etc.. I recently rebuilt one whose owner did exactly this. Have to say, the original tubes are a little like an "Art Glass" exhibit, now. Rebuilt with NOS Cetrons and a new band switch wafer (original was vaporized), it makes about 505W on 10M and 665W on 20M, which are its worst and best performances, respectively. Scan other posts - 500-600 watts out or so are normal for an SB-200.
