The incredibly popular tri-band Magnum1 that covers 12-10m seems to be next on the list for those who need a little more power. The idea is to fit the bottom from the Ranger RCI-69FFB4 which at a whopping $574 consists of 4x2SC2879 pills which can drive the radio to 500 watts as mentioned before. I’m not sure which mode? Maybe AM/SSB but not known 100%
There is insane and there is really insane. Incredibly priced but can see that some competition operators will have a go at it. Already in Germany there is the Naya edition of the Magnum1 with better noise blanking, better and non erratic signal meter behaviour and almost 100w SSB. Maybe we’ll have a video here soon of some of the modifications. They also include talkback replaced with 1-6.3Khz audio on FM.
