I don't think it is necessary to go through the bands ... I expect
the power gain will decrease slightly as the frequency goes up. It
appears that the power gain is at least 10db and as much as 13db. It
is possible to use the amplifier in the normal manner with standard
100 watt radio as well as some of my favourite QRP radios. My
venerable Ten Tec Argonaut would easily become a 25 to 50 watt radio !!
