Hi Flavio, have a look here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RM-ITALY-KL-203-AMP-100W-FM-200W-SSB-HF-AMPLIFIER-BURNER-65CM-PATCH-LEAD-SO239-/302255470044?hash=item465fd475dc it's 100 watts AM/FM and 200 watts SSB realistically you won't quite get that much out of it but it will be good enough, don't bother going any bigger the gains in power will not be worth it as every doubling in power only increases the signal to the receiving station by just one "S" point.

If you genuinely want 200W then look for an RM KL505V, you wont be pushing it hard for 200w and so will likely be a bit cleaner output, you wont get 200 out of a KL203 in any way or form.

Hi Flaviu,
Be very careful when running an amplifier from your home, with 200 watts you can very easily cause interference problems to your neighbours.

Hi. Flavia.
Yes Roy is right, I would recommend a KL203p. I have used one for nearly 2yrs with no problems of causing
interference. I have spoken to Roy several times on Corsica using only 60w. I only use 25w. on the local nets
on FM like tonite & get out about 120/140mls. It's how you set-up the station & work the prevailing working
conditions which change daily even hourly. It's best if you can go mobile, if your on a big housing estate or
built up area, try going horizontal, but you will lose local contacts in this mode. Good luck & experiment.

Whatever you can afford, if your Antenna is set up/tuned in well you can run 1kw and will not cause interference. Take your time and read up as many reviews as you can before you buy. I was told, buy a bigger amp than you need and it will be ticking over all day at 200ish without any problems. I test my Antennas at 1kw when I have built them with 0 watts return from them. Just take you time before you part with any money.

Designing and building even bigger Antennas. Hoping for some good DX, waiting for solar minimums to fade away.
