Re: MiniBoots Amp
- Thanks to all for your input. Looks like the ARRL design or the HF
Packer might be the way to go. Should work with the Softrock RXTX.
- Don't overlook the 5W Pre Amp from http://hfprojects.com which can take
SDR output levels up to what's needed to drive their 100W amp. I have
built the 5W pre-amp and am about to get started on the 100W. As others
have noted, only the 100W stage needs the LPF.

- http://hfprojects.com also takes the 5 watt preamp one step further and
combines it with a LPF kit and calls it the SlimGem. This amp will take
a ½ watt input and put out 5 watts or if you change the input
attenuator it will take 2.5 watts in and put out about 15 20 watts. I
built one and it works very well. The LPF kit all by itself is a pretty
interesting kit for any TX you might want to homebrew. Both kits are
pretty cheap are of good quality.
