    I've got a customer asking me for a 1000W RF VHF driver for their laser.

    What are cutting lasers like as a load?
    Are they resistive 50 ohms or complex?

    Are there any spectral purity requirements or can you just drive them with
    the RF from the PA with a bit of harmonics (say -20dbc for H2).

    PS: I'll post solution to the flathead screw problem as soon as I get it
    from my vendor so I can take some photos.

    Suggestion: Copy this also to alt.lasers.

    I can't help you here, having only driven laser diodes (including some
    pretty fat ones).
