                                   Info on the Henry 8K Ultra
The Henry 8K ultra is the heaviest duty amp of them all, no others compare:

The amp weighs 350 lbs:

Plate voltage is 6000 volts unkeyed.

Plate transformer rated 1 amp continous, 2 amp intermitent.

The control Head measure plate current, Plate volts, Grid current, Filament voltage. 5000 watts forward power, 500 watts reflected power.

The amp is tuned remotely with the control head which is pictured here, the rf/power supply can be used 100ft away from the amp.

The amp covers almost all frequecies 1.8 to 30 mhz.

Tune up is easy and straight forward, tune for max out put.

The amp uses a 3cx3000 A7 for the final tube. When you look in the amp, the components are larger and heavier than any Amp I have ever seen, These are big components, BIG and HEAVY DUTY. 350 lbs worth.

DRIVE: OUTPUT: Meter Coaxial Dymanic

100 w ~2000 Carrier 200 W ~4400 Carrier 300 W ~6000 Carrier ~350W ~7600 PEP More in more out !

Considerations:

ALL, I stress ALL components must be able to handle the output, even to a dummy load like I have done testing it.

Antenna switches, coax, antenna, must be able to handle the power you plan to use>

Amp needs a 230 volt source rated 50 amp minimum.

Conclusion:

The amp can run 24/7 at 1500 watts out put, The blower is loud, but since it is remote, I can't hear it, but have heard some Dentrons almost as loud>

Why buy an amp that can run much power than you can use ? Why have an amp that is capable of being used for commercial needs ?

Don't buy it to run all the power, but if you have to have the best, than there is no finer amp ever made or that even come close.

The very last Henry 8k Ultra was made after the factory closed on 12/31/2004, it was shipped March 2005, serial number 65-445. Over the years Henry made improvements to their line of amplifiers. These amps were made from 1991 until this one in 2005. (The control head pictured is not serial number 65-445, but a slightly older one to illustrate all the presets and Peak reading factory installed metering system....The last Henry 8k had no presets or peak reading meters, it just read output in average watts.......is the last Henry 8k Ultra for Sale ? "Henry 8K Ultra For Sale"   Sure first $20K can and must carry it home.....
Hope you enjoy seeing one the really great amp ever made........
