    I would like to read comments from those that have one or used the Palstar amp.

    1. How does it do on FSK rtty?
    How long and how much power do you run.

    2. If you needed tech support / service how are they for turn around time?

    3. Can it handle running break-in CW okay?

    4. QST review mentioned not to over drive it, what are you doing to limit input power?

    5. Has any one used a splitter / combiner with 2 of these to get legal limit output? If you have please share more information about your setup. I have plenty of power available so 2 at the same time would not be an issue.

    I am going to pass on getting an 8410 or power genius and not really thrilled about an Acom. This one is clearly marked MADE IN USA and that ranks high in the decision process.

    One review mentioned it did not do QSK, not a big deal.
    Another mentioned they sent it back because of a "loud" fan, not an issue.
    Over whelming majority is positive comments regarding the amp.

    No one mentioned RFI hash from the power supply so that must not an issue.

    Thank you for posting the link to those reviews.
