2. HYS


HYS Ham HF Amplify Power 3-30MHz HF Transceiver with Fan for Handheld 3-30Mhz Two Way Radio

HYS #ad - However, it will decrease the amp' life time and also if the antenna can not endure the output watt, we do not suggest to work the PE Max for a long time, which will damage the amp, thank you very much!. About the working general output for am & fm mode is around 100W and the most effective output is around 200 W with input 5 W and around 200-250 when the input is 10W.

It is also should be connect with the amplifier corresponding frequency. If it is lower or higher than the required, it will not work and even will not only burn out the amplifier but also will damage the radio. Different mode have the different input requirement. The frequency of the connecting antenna is very significant.

The most effective working frequency is 20-30 mHz, and with the situations of working under 20 MHz, the v. S. W. R will be higher and also the heat dissipation will be higher. If you want to reach the pe max output, please check that the input should exactly 10W or 5W, the DC Power should actually be over 14V and 18A and also other conditions should be perfecT.
