all-mode operation allows AM, SSB, FM, CW or Data operation. Specifications
show typical Pin/Pout/Freq specs and DC power requirements, These are
linear amplifiers with drive power levels usable down to <.5 watt.
All amps are spectrally checked and are free of harmonics and spurious
T/R-switching (rf-sensed or hard-key PTT) is built-in and incorporates
adjustable relay delay control. T/R-switched amplifiers have
user friendly controls are mounted on front panel with all RF and DC cables
attached out of sight on rear panel. LED status lights on front
continuously monitor the operating state of the unit. Thermal
shutdown protection built-in >+65°C. Full remote control
capability is available; use REM-10 remote plug-in unit. Continuous-duty
amps are straight amps only and most can have a relay bypass added (option).
GaAs FET pre-amplifier option is also available. Preamp GaAs FET device
rated at .5db NF with +18 dbm 3rd-order intercept point. The
result is superior weak signal reception with improved strong signal intermod
electrical and mechanical construction integrity using the best quality
components and workmanship. All models are manufactured in
U.S.A. and carry a 1 year limited warranty. Designed to ICAS
ratings and meets FCC part 97 regulations. Consult factory
for special requirements.
Series - Designed for low-power applications
such as a power amp for hand-helds or driver amp for higher-power amp
systems. They are recommended for output powers up to 60 Watts. Size/Wt
is 3 x 6 x 5" (h,w,d), 5 Lbs.
