No tuner is fine me. Tuners belong at the far end of the coax, not in the shack. But is it really true that the power supply is linear? Sounds like a terrible waste of energy to me. Switchers *can* be made quiet these days. Switchers are also much more adaptible to various primary voltages.
On the topic of 120/220V, of course I have nothing against 220V which is a must in Europe, as long as it will run on 120V. I do not currently have 220V in the shack but could relatively easliy install it as the breaker panel is just next door.

Can someone at Visalia confirm if the prototype KPA500 does or does not
have an on board antenna tuner?
