The 23 cm amplifier pictured here delivers more than 300 watts with 10 watts drive. I've actually driven it to 400w+. It's water-cooled, thermally stable, and very smooth-tuning. It includes a TR switch, relay sequencer, and all controls necessary to operate the amplifier safely and reliably.

At it's heart is a Russian tetrode, the GS-15B, modified for water cooling. It runs in a well-made cavity I purchased from Mats Bengtsson, KD5FZX. Complete information on the cavity itself can be viewed here, courtesy of Mats and Paul Goble, ND2X.
Featured below are construction details on the complete amplifier and power supply I built for this cavity. Click here for the complete schematics.
