I had the same problem with a 1 watt driver ceramic case device. I needed some additional heat sinking for the ceramic case device. So, I just drilled a hole in the PCB, inserted a brass rivet, filled it with solder, and flattened it in an arbor press. A bit of silicon grease on both sides of the rivet and it carried enough heat to the aluminum chassis to make it work.

Well I have a Ranger RCI-2970 150W PEP transceiver for those frequencies... Digital tuning. AM, FM, SSB.. Makes a great signal generator I suppose... 100 Hz tuning steps. Used it on CB too, worked large parts of the whole world with it. Do not remember what I payed for it, guy came to my house to deliver it, he had modified it for greater frequency range including CB.
Not sure I can tune mine that low, not below 27 MHz. There are a lot of linears on the market, yes Italy seems to be on the air a lot with horrible huge amounts of power :-) That was probably illegal, so he cannot ship, or even use it. Some run kW.
