Anyone using the ACOM 1000 or SPE 1K-FA please? I would be glad to hear any comments for/against.

The SPE is perfect! I was so pleased with the first one I bought another to use in UK.

I have used the SPE but not the Arcom.

Essentially this is an apple and pear question.

The Arcom is "just" an amplifier whilst the SPE has a built in auto ATU and is essentially a station organiser taking inputs from two different radios, has a choice of four antenna outputs and has full CAT control and an RS2342 data interface. A joy to use and power instantly available.

I have no idea what the current prices are but I would save for the SPE, I doubt you would be disappointed.

Hope this helps.
