While AM and CW operation are well documented on the Johnson Viking Valiant, its single sideband capability is far less so. As such, I worked up the nerve tonight to try it out. Why does that require "nerve"? As I see it, my Valiant has worked great with no sparks, flames, or burning smells since January 27, 2015, so why taunt fate? That's where nerve comes in... Normally, an "SSB adapter" would be connected to J5, the rarely discussed SO-239 connector on the rear of the chassis. By today's standards, this adapter could also be a low power SSB transmitter. AH-HAH! I have one of those! A review of the Valiant operating manual (pages 18-19) reveals that the transmitter is basically tuned up normally on the desired frequency. There's a bit of discussion about adapter settings and alignment, but since I was using an Icom 706, I was confident that it was putting out a proper single sideband signal. The Valiant provides a non-inductive 50Z load on J5, provided by R10 and R54 which are both 100 Ohm, 2 Watt carbon resistors in parallel. I then set up the Valiant and IC-706 for the same frequency and began testing with the Icom power on its lowest setting. Incredibly, everything worked well and the Valiant did indeed amplify the Icom's SSB output to 150Watts PEP. Admittedly, I could have gotten 100W PEP without the Valiant, but I thought the application was interesting, and for those who have QRP SSB transmitters, the Viking Valiant can prove useful for bringing that power up a bit.
