What format do you want the layout in? The mounting is slightly different
for the MTP3055E's as part of my design was to allow attachment to a much
larger heatsink. I used a shareware PCB designer to do the job so I can send
that PCB file to you (Protel's format). Only think is that I do not know if
the component layout will be clear due to the rather compact component
placement. I also change some resistor types to 1/2 watt from 1/4 (the low
value resistors) because some had burnt out earlier. The biasing really
needs looking into however.

I tried a design with the original transformers which were mostly okay but
it seemed to overheat quite badly so I change the output transformer to a
shorter but bulkier one. This one is square in shape so it looks nicer on
the PCB. I was trying to make the whole thing small enough to put into one
of my existing rigs but the heat made the whole thing quite difficult to do.

Let me know what you need and I'll see what I can do about it.
