PGXL March '2019 Updates

  • Question
  • Updated 4 months ago
Thread is to ask those that have ordered the PGXL and have Received the Amplifier a few questions.  All hoping that those that have received the Amp can give others some answers to many asked questions.

Upon your receipt of the "Greatest Amp In Ham Radio History".....
-  When did you order it?
-  What was your PO Number
-  When did you get it?
-  How was the Setting Up?
-  First Impressions?

Will stop asking these questions when the units start to ship on a regular bases...

Thanks

Delivered 3/25.  Removal of the Original Amp and getting the PGXL in place, 220 Volt Plug on the Supplied Wire, Download the Software Package and load the Utility Program and run the amp through its paces took all of about an hour with success.   Fan Noise is less than my OM400A+ and Drive to get approx 1500 watts is about 40 watts.  First impressions seems to indicate the PGXL is all that it is advertised.   Time will tell but initial feelings are one of satisfaction.

NOTE:   Downloaded the Firmware Software but the latest version 3.1.2 has not changed so that was never required.

To all of the new owners of the PGXL Amplifier......  Enjoy and break the 3Y0I (Bouvet) Pile Ups

Dale...  Got mine last week and yes...  I have seen the units at both Dayton / Zenia and Orlando.  Did not think that the size was an issue.  Compared to my OM2000A+ it is not has high BUT yes it is deeper.  Not an issue and she just perks right along.  Actually the Fan Noise on the Standard Mode is quieter than the OM.  Obviously moving the setting up causes an increase in Fan Noise but does not come over the TX Audio and with Headphones on (DX'er here) that is not an issue either.  So far I am very impressed with the unit.  Great Power Out and certainly the ease of setting up and operating just adds to the satisfaction.

C U on the bands

The receipt of your amp slices 70 days off of the expected delay by my calculation.

Things are picking up!!
