Well, I will be watching the mail box, I have a THP HL 2.5 and have had it for about three years. Great amp, not one bit of trouble. Thing is THP folded up its tent, so when I saw the Expert this caught my eye. I contacted Bob Hardie to see if he can get the amp I paid for is still available. So, far no reply, but I am sure I will hear from him. Looks like about $500 more then when I ordered it from SPE. I just got a TS990, I have an FT5 and FT 2k as well. My original plan was to sell off the 2k, move the Expert in the hole, connect both the 5 k and 990 to the Expert and move my THP to 40 meters. Well, maybe this will be the end of this debacle, let's hope some checks show up tomorrow, or Saturday.
