    Amazing that there does exist a great many members of society thst are so Clueless of much the things they do and how much they actually do it... Certainly, many of those infractions are inconsequential to whatever perceived social standing or economic status that conditioned such belief and righteousness.
    Somehow they are not a problem . Such rules shouldnt or wouldnt be caused by them or pertain to them. They simply are so much better that they live in such a bubble of rightousness that it makes the absolute clueless about the reality outdide of their own world.
    I think in this day and age it is likely impossible to be a 100% law abiding person. Everyone is a criminal , because there is no legal precedence for ignorance of the law.

    It's kind of like driving a car.....you intend to drive 55....but the next thing you know, you're bumping 60 or 65.....so you slow it back down.....or, maybe you don't......after all, some people can't drive 55.

    If you drive 55 on highways near NYC, the cops may look at you cross eyed for obstructing traffic. It’s all relative.

    Maybe you can tell the rest of us where these inexpensive 3CX3000's are?

    I have heard for the one who did it, that back many years a go, the npa, a rebel group in the Philippines used cb radio's to communicate. it seems someone, who will remain nameless, decided to clear the air waves. the 10 kw transmitter at capias site was used to blow the front end out of quite a few cb rigs. the few remaining could not hold out to the 200 kw transmitter going to the rombic. there is power and then THEIR IS POWER.

    Nice one! Can you please get someone to do that around here, to clear the lowlife off of those frequencies?

    That didn't happen.

    You could park under a "rhombic with 10 thousand watts" and not damage the "front end" of a cb.

    Rege, who HAS parked a truck with a receiver under a "rhombic", only it had 40,000 watts going to it.....

    25,000w carrier
    3cx15000a7 tube






    He apparently has a couple of 3cx40000a7 tubes also, but I heard somewhere he decided not to make an amp out of one as he had planned - too much power and it would be pointless.

    As it is the power supply for the 3cx15000a7 amp draws over 200 amps at 220/240v. The service power is 400 amps at the location where the amp is. As to how much electricity a 3cx40000a7 would take - I am not real sure, but take everything in this amp and scale it up. The transformer would be insane. The HV filter caps would be even crazier. The list goes on.
