I have a St. Jude pacemaker since 2014 with no issues. I would like to get an amp but in reading it is somewhat vague on whether it would be safe The antenna is an end fed long wire, whose feed point is about 60' away, I talked with the tech at Abbot, who bought St. Jude for some time ago, the other day and he said there has been no testing done with high power ham equipment.

Basically, I am trying to get some real world feedback from hams that have had experience with this issue. I did see an article that was on the website here that laid out the recommended max V/Meter but I don't have any way of testing that.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
