You might try searching the QRP-L archives for more info. When I was
waiting for my kit to arrive I spent a lot of time searching there and
found a ton of useful information there. There's a ton of discussions
that dealt with mods for increasing power and a lot of other topics
regarding the Sierra. I know there was at least one discussion regarding
10 and 15m power output.
The URL is <http://www.kkn.net/archives/html/QRP-L/>. You'll need to
type in a username and password to access the archives. Use "qrpl" for
both. Then you'll be able to do a search on "Sierra" or whatever you like.
You'll also have the option of setting the search to display the results
in chronological order (or however you like), which is nice as it kind
of lets you follow the history of the Sierra and also makes the results
easier to follow.
Also, check the "Files" section here on this group, if you haven't
already. I think one of them deals with mods for increasing power.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the Sierra. I just built mine about a month or
so ago and I'm really happy with it. Incidentally, Paul, W0RW who gave
you good advice here was one of my first contacts with it (Hi Paul! Tnx
Best of luck and I hope we meet on air one day.
- You can read about the DL PA by Funk Amateur QRP Club here
It is probably not available any more.
