Review (mpn:sb-201) Heathkit SB-201 with 10 meters for HF Bands .
Sometimes i can get them to tune up and other times i can’t. The top shield is not standard. This amp also has the “sag” in the chassis where the transformer mounts probably fr. This sb-201 has an sb-200 bandswitch and input coils installed giving it 10 meters as well as the 15/20/40/80 meter bands.
The tubes are taylor tubes and i am able to get 500 watts on 20/40/80 meters. When i’ve used it i drove it with a yaesu ft-450at and utilized the internal tuner in the ft-450at to match to the amp rather than trying to mess with the input coils. I find loading 10 & 15 to be a bit finicky. This amp has the harbach power supply and the harbach soft-key mod to allow use with modern transceivers.
I acquired this amp several years ago as a backup to my sb-200 but find it is taking up space and is excess to my needs since i rarely go other than barefoot. When i can i get around 400 watts on 10 and 450 on 15. It was cut from an sb-220 shield since the original shield was missing when i got the amp…..
