The Ameritron AL-80B kilowatt output desktop linear amplifier can double your average SSB power output with high-level RF processing. You get cooler operation because the AL-80B's exclusive Instantaneous RF Bias completely turns off the classic 3-500 tube between words. It saves hundreds of watts wasted as heat.

The T/R (transmission/receive) relay in the AL-80B switches nearly as fast as some vacuum relay QSK T/R switches.
