Fortunately, almost three years ago I was able to persuade John Brosnahan
, W0UN, to become president and technical director of Alpha/Power.Under John's leadership, Alpha/Power's worldwide reputation for delivering the most advanced and finest HF power amplifiers and customer service in amateur radio has been enhanced even more.But a combination of health issues and family obligations now makes it impossible for John
to continue devoting all or most of his
time to ALPHA operations.
we have had a great run of more than three decades on top ... i be not willing to risk that ALPHA legacy.Nor am I aware of any person or entity with the desire, the proven ability, the commitment, and the resources to acquire ALPHA and perpetuate the standards to which we have been dedicated for thirty-one years.In the event such interest does exist, however, we remain open to serious discussions.In the meantime...
When the current run of ALPHA 87A and ALPHA 99 amplifiers is completed, we will terminate engineering and manufacturing operations.

Having just bought a new Alpha 87a and a Digital Antenna System, I am absolutely distressed to hear that Scott, John
and company are fading from the scene! Puh-LEEEZE say it be not so!! I ardently hope that someone with the technical, financial and commitment capabilities will come along to perpetuate this outstanding product line.
At the same time, I respect the decision not to allow the name to be compromised.Alpha has for so long stood as the pinnacle in high quality, high power amps.i be fortunate to have one of the best...........
