Just added this little amp to my 5 watt FT-817. When 5 watts don't cut it flip the switch and you have an added 40 or 45 watts. I have been using it mostly on CW but I have made a few SSB QSOs with great reports. If you want one look around for the best price. Mine was $155 but you can find them at all prices, even over $225.00. Shipped from China - takes about 2 weeks. Makes Ham Radio fun...... Jack WB9OTX
