Oh life. It's bigger. It's bigger than you. And it is a lot bigger when you have a pair of these....
The amp is a Heathkit SB-200, good for around 500w on all bands, considerably more on 80 and 40m. This one was in great shape, probably the cleanest one I saw in the flea at Hamvention. The guy had $375 on it and my goal was to keep it under $300 and he came back at $325. I thought it was worth it but I went and got my amp gurus - K0DAS and W0ODS - to review the sale. Rod (DAS) looked over the amp with an eye on wear and tear, and seeing none, gave me the thumbs up. Jeff (ODS) was standing behind me literally whispering in my ear "Buy it! Buy it!" I guess I can't deny that kind of argument!
