Kenwood TL-922A Ham Radio Tube Linear Amplifier (works well, covers 17/24/10)
This amp is in pretty good cosmetic condition with only a few small scuffs/scratches. One meter lamp is out and will need to be replaced. The amp runs well and has Rich Measure's parasitic suppressor kit installed, along with some new capacitors underneath the chassis (see photos). It's very clean inside. The amp was modified by the previous owner to cover 17, 24, and 10. It currently has two RF parts 3-500Z tubes installed (different printing but identical construction). On 40 meters with 75 watts of drive, we're getting about 750 watts out (CW). For SSB, we're getting about 900 watts out on 60 watts of drive. The amplifier is currently wired for 120VAC. The previous owner replaced the cooling fan. Although it's a little noisy, it really keeps the tubes cool. However, he powered from an external 120VAC source. You can either continue to use an external 120VAC source for the fan, or if you're knowledgeable enough, you can try to wire it into the amp. Either way, you'll need to ensure the fan is powered, else you're sure to over-heat the tubes and potentially damage the amp. I can take the tubes out if you like, but I would personally recommend leaving them in. They are tight in the socket and are not going to come out. To be safe, we've padded them with foam inside the amp. But, as I said, it's your call and I'll do whatever you prefer. If you prefer one carrier over the other, please make that request when paying for the item. Rest assured, you'll receive your item in excellent condition!
