They are primarily for 28-29mhz powered by transistor's so not sure if it will be any good on 11metres, they need a lot of power input , I believe around 4-20w giving you 500w FM and 1000w USB. you can get some db gain by using the white button but once again not sure used on 11metres but you can use this feature without using the linear part. might be worth a try if its cheap enough as they cost around £250 new , not sure if you will need 500w though lol.

Old thread but thought I'd reply as I have a Texas Star 350HDV, I purchased this along with my Ranger 2950 when I lived in the USA and brought it back to the UK with me. Great amp, I primarily used it on AM and SSB in the USA, 1.5-2W drive gave around 200W on SSB and about 80W on AM. FM should give the same output as FM, I've only just reconnected it and haven't actually used it on FM yet.

These are capable of working 27Mhz no problem but may need set up if it was previously on 10M.

I have a couple of Texas Star DX 500V amps.  Seem to work fine on 11 meters AM and SSB.  They like a cool breeze blowing.

This is a broadband amp capable of covering the entire HF spectrum. Based on Engineer Application Notes for the RF devices. Hence, does not include any filtering on the output stage. I always run these types of amps with an external low pass filter to cut down on the heavy spurious emissions they create.
