  1. Hi Mike, thanks for the information. The amplifier is not being used anywhere near full power, i never transmit at 1.5Kw

    An Expert 1.3K-FA amplifier would have terrible intermodulation performance at such a high power level, so even if I am allowed to do it i would not consider doing so, i prefer to have lower output power and a good clean signal.

  2. Philip, you violate the license! You can’t use the amplifier 1,5 kW
    Turn over your license and you will read on the other side the following:

    2. The License fee for an Amateur Transmitting Station shall be Rf 100 per annum. And the temporary license fee for an Amateur Transmitting Station shall be Rf 25/-

    5. …
    6. In case it is detected that an Amateur Transmitting Ststion has been used unlawfully, a fine of between Rf 25 and Rf 50 shall be imposed. Further, if the Telecommunications Authority of Maldives deems it neccessary, the license may also be cancelled.
