    If you would like more power for 2 meters, especially if you do 2 meter SSB or CW then check out the Mirage B 5018 G 2 Meter Amplifier! This 160 watt amp can really push your signal! The Mirage B 5018 G amplifier doesn't take up much room and runs quiet! You can also use the Mirage B 5018 G for tropospheric ducting!

    I have both a B108 & B310g, love them both for those extra s units & band opening's.

    I use the B-34-G for my POTA activations. Its amazing what that little 35w amp does on 2m weak signal with the Elk Log Periodic. Fantastic amplifiers. The 160w version would be amazing in the shack.

    As opposed to the competitor's amps that can't be used for tropospheric ducting??? :):):)

    More Power for 2M?

    I recall Mirage selling 2M amps with the same power rating for at least 30-years.

    Suggest the title be changed to Same Power for 2M, LOL.

    Of greater interest would be information concerning any improvements to this particular amplifier over predecessors.

    I have used an HT at one watt for that too, even though such activity was not certified by the manufacturer. :)

    Still have my homemade 2 x MRF 247 class a/B amplifier doing 160 watts, build that one 33 years or so ago from the motorola handbook.

    Unfortunately no longer manufactured but you can still get them on the second hand market if you "really" want more power for 2m - it needs 100w drive though - so TS200, IC9700 etc. as driver rig.
    Crazy power level for 2 metres though.
