On K9ZW website I note a comment from OM Ranko:
Power Genius XL sneak peak

Ranko 4O3A and the Sky Sat team have been hard at work on the Power Genius XL linear amplifier and will be showing it at the Force 12 Dayton booth. Here’s a sneak peak of a recent test into a dummy load. This baby uses a pair of state-of-the-art LDMOS chips and cruises at 1,500 Watts 100% duty cycle (no worries in RTTY or JT65) and covers 160m to 6m (4m for Europe). We’ll be announcing full stats, availability, and pricing ASAP after FCC and CE testing.

Is it really true that the European version will have the 4m band enabled?

Also, I recall comments  that European version will not have the 15 dB limit implemented.

Any comments from Flex or Sky Sat?

If he says it has 4m it will have 4m but probably at reduced power. My SPE 1.3K-FA also had 4m and it did not have the 15dB gain limit. I'm also hoping when the FCC removes the rule that we can remove the attenuator for US spec as well.
