Here is a beautiful example of the famous AL-80A with a 4.9 eham rating. Rated at 850 watts CW and over 1kw SSB. In near mint condition. Working as it should. Tested in all bands 160 through 10 meters. but not all at full power. WARC NOT tested. 75 watts input give 800 watts carrier CW on 80 meters as shown in photo 2. Output varies depending on band. Only had an old TS-820 to drive it. 75 watts was all I could get on 80 meters. Less on others. typically 10 times input to output. There is really only one mark on it as the photo shows on the left hand front trim on the side. Only fault I can find is left meter needs new bulbs. Wired for 220 volts. This is a 1989 model and has the Factory Soft start. Also has the 10 meter mod done. Still has the original Eimac 3-500Z tube. This is surplus to my needs. This was an estate find stored in it's box. It will be double boxed in original box with a copy of manual. Tube will be bubble wrapped in place to avoid shipping damage

Locals are welcome to come and try before you buy.
