A while ago (20years!!) I built a PA using one of the then popular bricks M57762 modules. Its on a Bob Platts PCB. As it was intended for ATV I didn't add any ptt in the box, making it a compact and fan cooled unit.
Is it suitable for DATV at reduced drive levels?
Be good to actually use it....

Yes. I use one with reduced drive, but it is not very linear, so:
- Only drive it to 5 watts output
- Don't use it closer than twice your symbol rate in MHz to the band edges or anything else that you don't want to interfere with
