Thanks to Greg and David for sending the amp info to the W5SC list. I have
the amp in my possession and it checks out just fine. It belongs to a
friend in Austin who purchased it, along with a Heathkit SB-220, from a SK
estate in Austin. I went through the SB-220 and it was sold to a HAM in the
area. The AL-572 had an ALC problem plus an intermittent ON-OFF switch.
New parts solved the problems. The amp looks great. No obvious cosmetic
issues. Works well on all bands using my trusty Heathkit HW-101 as the
exciter. Comes with the original manual, fuses for 220v and a 220v plug.
If you are interested and would like some pictures or you would like to drop
by and see it, just let me know.

Just in time for that Christmas gift you have been wanting.......I'm selling
this for a friend. I've seen the amp, it is very very clean and performs
He is asking $950 for this amp, sells for $1,780 new. This is in outstanding
condition and all 4 of the rugged 572B tubes test excellent. This is a
very solid performer giving you 1,300 watts on 160 to 10 meters.
Contact me if you are interested.
