THe main reason for the Mirage is 5 in gets 40 out.I may not need os use it but its nice to know it would be there.
IF the one of the amps you have is a 35 dual band, let me know if interested in selling.
No, sorry I don't have a dual band amp.
I used a Mirage with an old HT in the car once for added power. When I got out of the car, I just disconnected and put the rubber duck back on. While in rural areas, it gave me enough power to get into repeaters.
I have a Mirage B-1016 (10 watts in gives you 160 watts output). It pairs nicely with a Kenwood TR-9000. The TR-9000 is an all mode 2-meter radio. The radio only puts out 10 watts, so it is a good match for the amp. The receiver pre-amp in the Mirage is outstanding. I used to enjoy working 2-meter SSB. I have another accessory that goes with the TR-9000, but I cannot think of the name of it. I've not been trying to sell them but would if someone was interested. The radio is in the original box with manuals. That "original box" has an appeal to hams for some reason. Maybe I could sell the box seperately.
I also have a Mirage B-5016 (45 watts in gives 160 watts out). It is practically new. It also has a receiver pre-amp but not as impressive as the older amp.
Sorry I didn't have what you were looking for.
