KPA1500 Review on eHam

Rick Tavan-2
I've posted a review of my field test KPA1500 on eHam:
http://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/13702.

I got sort of carried away with testing the amp and used it in NAQP CW even though that contest is limited to 100W. The amp worked great and gave me a delightful 12dB unfair advantage! So my entry is a checklog but I sure had fun generating it. Apologies to my NCCC friends - it was an inadvertent screw-up. I had really intended to operate within the rules and contribute a few points.

73,

/Rick N6XI

This is one of the downsides of the KPA1500.  Unlike other amps, it feels
like QRP when it's putting out 1.5 KW.
