Yaesu FL-2500 HF Amplifier converted to 2 x Gi7B Russian Ceramic Triodes
This is Yaesu's "Grand Linear" for the HF bands. It has been converted, not by me, to use a pair of Gi7B Russian ceramic triodes to replace the standard set of 5 x 6KD6 valves. It is a really substantial amplifier, normally rated as 1.5KW input power, but this one has an additional torriodal transformer for the triode heaters, so it's even heavier. I have tried it on 40m and despite being rather "home brew" in construction it functioned well, but it was far too powerful for what I want, so it's up for sale here.
Collection only, this is seriously heavy, much heavier than a 2100z which aren't light! I cannot accept any responsibility for the safety of the new owner of this amplifier. It generates a substantial HT level that will kill you if you're not careful.
