When someone asked about an amplifier, I deduced that he already got his license - Pirates usually asked about "Transmitter", not amplifier.

I plan to post an instructable about my simple 300w grounded grid amplifier later, but right now I can offer one of articles from my (very new) blog: timelesson.blogspot.com/2009/12/there-was-book-of-books-in-early-1970s.html

3xGU-50 amplifier from this article you can see on the photos. Hand-made in 1987 :-)

Just a quick question. Are you looking for an amplifier to increase transmit power or an amplifier for receiving signals (RF preamplifier)?
