Is it just me or is he putting 25kw through what looks like LMR400, even if it's 600, that's a head scratcher?
Very impressive!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shear power...............Wow through a 7 or 8 element about 50 or 100' in the air just plain devastating !!!!!!!!!!!
Let me put it this way the bird 43 line section is rated for 10 kw, i have the same coaxial dynamics 25kw slug for the 43, always would read high and I have tested a few. with a amp that size he needs to step up to 1 5/8" line section. I wish he would have showed the plate voltage and current meters a lil longer to get a true indication of the real power that thing is doing
thats the nice thing with tubes, if you have the amps and volts you can figure out the volts unless you grounded the transformer.
Grounded the transformer? Are you talking for the filament? If you ground the high voltage section, I'll let you turn it on. Wish I could see more in the box as well. I wonder what is used for plate tuner. Volts and amps equal power yes. But you also have to take into account efficiency. My next question on the bird, was that a peak reading or average reading.
its a bad idea to ground the transformer, it was a mute point of mystery watts
thats not lmr 400, he told me what it was last time I was in his shop but i forgot...some name and number ive never heard of lol
I've put 35Kw through a bird 43 section with a 50Kw slug in the hole, although it was only for a few seconds, it held fine for the brief test.It is very possible to do. Blown a few PL's off coax a time or two too. I believe that is a hard-line he's using, not LMR400.

Dayum one day when I grow up I'm gonna get me a big ole leenyar amplifyar like that!!!!!!!!!!
Not sure exactly how he has it scaled but i saw where he said it was 7kv at 3.5, amp looks good I especially like his music when he's making them...
Yeah I have seen it happen with 20KW blew the connector right off the back of 43 line section, what was the 50 kw a KH1? Never saw anything bigger than a 25k and that was made by coaxial for the 7/8 line section.
I see the preferred material.... Sweet..... :lol:
