well... if a pair on SSB gives around 350 on 75m, then (4) should 
deliver around 700, right?  (8) would be 1400, and now we're talking 
perhaps getting an easy 125 to 150w of carrier out of the thing, and 
being able to fully modulate it, with some room for transients in the audio.

Still, solid state devices -must- come with some sort of tuned output, 
otherwise the parasites generated from the even harmonics will eat the 
amp alive.
