[AMRadio] power ratings

The plate dissapation of the 6146's is the key. Your carrier steady on
should not exceed the dissapation rating. This is about 50 watts if I
remember right which would give you 200 watts PEP. So your power suppl;y
should be capable of about 150 watts continuous and it will handle the 200
watts on peaks. I would beef up the fan so that I had a good amount of air
passing the glass of the 6146's to keep the seals cool.
There were several articles in old mags for the conversion of DX100 to
linears for the SB10.
Those would be a good start for info.
Healthfully yours,
                          DON W4BWS
