Transistor linear amplifier for QRP rigs

Somewhen more power is required, e.g. at times of declining sun spot activity. The PA show here is ideally suited for QRP rigs like FT-817, IC-703, K2, SG-2020 etc.

HLA-305V, Transistor KW-PA 160-10m, 250 Watt

The HLA-305V operates from 1.8 - 30 MHz and its output power is 250W, with an input power of 1-10 Watt. There are 6 filters built-in to suppress harmonics, which are switched automatically but can also be switched manually for special operating conditions.

At the front panel there is a switchable input attenuator as well as a LC-display which can show input power, output power, heat sink temperature or output SWR. The intensity of the background light is adjustable. The CPU monitors input power, temperature and VSWR. Any error status are saved so that the manufacturer or authorised reseller can read them out for diagnose purposes. The PA has a PTT input (use for SSB recommended), but also a built-in HF-VOX.

For optimal heat distribution the PA transistors are mounted on a large copper heat spreader (200x60x3mm). The HLA-305 has an oversized heatsink and therefore remains cool during operation.

For operation the PA requires 13.5V at max. 34A, dimensions are about 240x420x70mm and weight 4,3 Kg.

The model HLA-305V comes with 2 additional temperature-controlled fans and thus has a total height of 80mm instead of 70mm. The DC cable is removable.

HAL-1200: Transistor KW-PA 160-6m, 1200 Watt

This KW Transistor-PA is 'as light as a feather'. The HAL-1200 produces 1200W PEP from 10-75 input power (45W typ.) on 160-10m and at least 600W PEP on 6m.

The device is processor-controlled and therefore has all the abilities this technology offers: the processor provides automatic band switching, transmitter/receiver switching without power to conserve relais contacts, controls the input attenuators (ALC is not needed) and monitors all operating states of the PA, of course.

The LC-display with background light shows operating states of the PA (Ready, Standby, On Air, Protect, Warning) as well as input and output power, SWR, temperature and so on. The firmware of the processor can be updated for future add-ons, such as an automatic antenna tuner that is planned.

The PA provides seven automatically switched, 5-pin output filters. The PA transistors are run with 50V and therefore very linear. The far range power supply for 100-260V~ is built-in.

This compact PA (260x330x150mm) weights with power supply only about 9 Kg, which also makes it predestined for DXepidtions.

HLA-150V Plus

HLA-300V Plus

Shortwave Power Amplifiers 150/300Watt
Compact and handy linear power amplifiers for all HF bands from 1.8 to 30MHz, with approx. 150 or 300W output power. These amplifiers work real linear amplifiers and not as a C class device, as many simple CB type amps do. A special feature the amplifiers have a six-way output low-pass filter, which is switched automatically by micro processor. Additionally this filter can be switched manually (e.g. when receiving).

The relative output power is shown on a bar graph on the front panel. The amplifiers have a protection circuit against high SWR. Transmit/Receive switching can be done either be HF Vox or a PTT cable. The controls on the front panel allow a selection of the Vox hold time, additionally a 3dB input attenuator can be selected, which reduces the amplification by about 50%.

Connectors: IN/OUT 2x PL, PTT: cinch socket, active low.
The model HLA-150V-Plus has two temperature controlled fans, good for continous operation. The model HLA-300V-Plus has three temperatur controlled fans. On high frequencies the output power is slightly reduced, the model HLA-300V-Plus reaches approx. 250W.

BLA-350: 300W Transistor Amp for HF with built in power supply

In contrast to many small amplifier for 12V operations, the BLA-350 is an mosfet-amplifier for your station desk. It covers all HF bands from 1.5 to 30MHz and all modes (SSB, CW, AM, FM) and is well suited for QRP transceivers like FT-817, IC-703 etc., but also to get more power from 100W class transceivers, which can then be operated with a lower output power.

Manally switched low pass filters care for a good suppression of harmonics. Of course the amplifier does not need and heat-up time, and except for then band selection no tuning is required. The max. output power is 300W, with a max. allowed input power of 14W with the input attenuator switched on. An LC Display shows various operating parameters.

The amplifier BLA-350 has an ALC output and a PTT input for transceiver connection, but can also be operated by HF vox. The coaxial connectors are SO-239 sockets (PL sockets). The built-in power supply is suitable for use with voltages from 200 to 250V AC. Multiple protection circuits support trouble free operation: automatic switch-off at too high SWR or too high temperature.
