Everyone says that, but ol' Lee/KC5BPT in Sargent, Texas, does a damn 
fine job with his 25w from a single 807, modulated by a pair of 5881's.

Ronnie/K5WLT does an awesome job with his single 807 Knight Kit T-50 and 
home brewed 6'Bell'6 modulator (one of the 6L6's is slightly 
microphonic.  He can slightly rap on the side of the tube, and the metal 
shield around the tube 'resonates' to a perfect 'bell' tone.)

Darrell/WA5VGO has worked the country on his home-brewed 25 ~ 30 watt rig. 

Everyone seems to be missing the boat... it's not in the amplifier 
that's gonna make you heard, or not...

Antenna is the key to being heard and hearing.

Driving your AM Rig without a scope, 
is like driving your car at night, without headlights. (K4KYV)
