    I am very satisfied with this product.I RECOMMAND IT TO ALL RADIOAMATEURS AROUND THE WORLD.I would like to Mr.ANDREI AVIRVAREI and his team for their effort in making and adjusting the amplifier.Call ANDREI with confidence and he will offer you the best transceiver in the world.I also received this product from him and I am very satisfied.Highly recommended.My name is Aurel from ROMANIA

  2. Marcel Jorba EA3IN (verified owner)

    Beautiful amp. Exactly what I was looking for.
    Well built and well thinked

    I use it between my SUNSDR2pro and my KPA500/ACOM2000.
    The fact to be able to control the amp gain is a charm

    Now thinking on the PA1000 🙂

    Congrats

  3. Franc (verified owner)

    JUMA PA100-D is a great amplifier and very well built by the roWaves Technologies team. I use it connected to my SunSDR2-Pro for digital communications on FT8. It usually runs at 30W-50W so it doesn’t heat up and the fan is quiet.
    For me, the right choice is also in terms of price / performance. My recommendation!

    The JUMA PA100-D is a great and nice amp and was built very well by roWaves. This is a professional team. When connected to my Juma TRX, 817 Ft and KX3 I use it in Cw and SSB mode. It usually runs at 50W-90W so it doesn’t heat up and the fan is quiet.
    For me, the right choice in terms of price / performance as well. My recommendation!

  5. Vladimir, R9HCH (verified owner)

    Cool amplifier! Exactly what I needed to field work. The build quality is respectable. Quiet fans. The controls are simple and straightforward. I used this amplifier to work in SSB, CW fnd Digital modes. An excellent choice for the price !

  6. Dave Hammond (verified owner)

    The roWaves Juma PA-100D is an excellent 100+W amplifier. It is just the thing for adding some punch to your QRP signal when needed. It is a quality built unit and offers tremendous features, many which were unexpected by me. See it in action on YouTube with Andrei-YO6TJJ giving the demonstration. I love this little amp!
    Andrei and the entire roWaves team are a joy to work with. My transaction was without any difficulty and the unit shipped stateside very quickly. More importantly Andrei and his team are dedicated to superior customer service and support. Buy from roWaves with total confidence as Andrei and the team are the real deal!

  7. Mike kb3lan (verified owner)

    I just received the JUMA PA100-D from roWaves. Shipping to the US was extremely fast, just 3 or 4 days. I’m using the amp with an Icom IC-705 in Auto Band Detection-Freq. Sense Mode and it is working great. I really like how you can control the gain and the fan is so quiet.

    Don’t hesitate to order if you’re from the US, the communication from Andrei is great and no issues with shipping. There is not a better amp price/performance wise available for your QRP radio.

  8. Dave Hammond-N1LQ (verified owner)

    Just an add-on to my previous review of November 10, 2021. Shortly after starting to use my new PA-100D, though a fault of my own making I burned-out the main board in the unit beyond easy repair. It was 100% my foolish mistake.
    Andrei and his team built me a replacement main board over the next six weeks 6 weeks. It arrived earlier this month. After an easy install it restored my PA-100D to its original condition and operation. I could not be happier. This was a special project for Andrei and his team. His price and time to complete the new board was very reasonable.
    It is a pleasure to be able to do business with such a fine person, team and company. They get my highest recommendation. 100% satisfied!.

  9. Jan PA 0 WIT (verified owner)

    I am very satisfied with this fine PA-100D. It is very well build on professional circuit boards and was shipped in 24 hours from Romania to The Netherlands.
    It came with its own Technical File and the output is from 180 W at 160M to 120 W on 10M, plenty of power for my Elecraft KX3! The size is so small it will be easy to take it in the field. The fan starts when needed and is very quiet.
    I had a minor problem after some days and Andrei was very helpfull to help me out. His service is outstanding and I highly recommend this amplifier and RoWaves, 5 stars!

  10. Claus (verified owner)

    Received everything nicely and safely packed. Very happy with my Juma PA100-D now. Hope you will be able to offer the big Juma PA1000 as well in the future.

  11. Dave AF5IC (verified owner)

    I recently ordered a Juma PA100D from roWaves Technologies, and I could not be more pleased! The amp arrived promptly, and was well packaged. When I emailed a question regarding the amp, it was answered quickly, and to my satisfaction. Once installed, the amp exceeded my expectations – It was tuned to perfection right out of the box.

    I look forward to doing business with this company again!

    RoWaves, and in particular Andrei went the extra mile to help me solve a problem I was having with my new amp. (Turned out to be a bad PTT cable that I made). They have been very responsive to all inquiries, and surprised me when they responded to my email from the USA within minutes when it was night in Romania. Would not hesitate to do business with them again.
