This is a very good linear amp. Kicks butt when the skip is in. I'm in Oregon and talk to most of the south and south-east coasts easy, Hawaii and So. Cal. on occasion, and Alaska near the Artic circle. I recommend this linear. The price is right too.
This amp works best at a drive of 12 watts maximum on ssb. Depending on your microphone stock or powermic it varies a little,but i have seen pep at 380 watts on ssb. The preamp works great bringing in those weak signals strong and readable. I am now working local groundwave stations so far at a distance of 110 miles with ease!

I bought this amp in 2013 and I've had it for 4 years now. I have to dispute Darwins review because This amp is Class AB and is excellent on SSB. If it has distorted sound it's because it's being over driven. If used accordingly this amp will provide nice clean audio on both AM and SSB.

This amp is honestly only decent on AM. SSB is very distorted and choppy. Look for something better such as a Class AB type of amp, or at least something that has biasing.
Very disappointing amp for sideband. Buy cheap, get cheap.
