WARNING: The transistors in the RF finals are expressly not covered by the manufacturers warranty.  We do not accept 'change of mind', 'upgrade', 'not quite what I wanted' or 'swap' returns so be careful this is the model you want before purchasing.

Please Read Before Using:

  • Do not use outside of the specified frequency ranges as damage may occur.
  • Care needs to be taken that the antenna you are connecting to is in good condition and the VSWR is less than 1.5:1 on the frequency you are transmitting on.
  • For higher power amplifiers (100+ watts) we recommend a single band antenna tuned to the frequency you are transmitting on.
  • Never use an amplifier to attempt to compensate for a poorly tuned, high SWR antenna, for poor quality coaxial cable or connectors.
  • We strongly recommend not using a power amplifiers with an indoor or loft antenna.
  • Check the transmit power immunity of your vehicle if vehicle mounting as this may damage the electronics and/or disable your vehicle or functions of your vehicle.
  • Be certain that the supply current from your power supply is ample for the peak current draw of the amplifier otherwise damage to the amplifier may occur.
  • Be very careful when operating at high power and keep well clear of the transmitting antenna.
  • Always check your antenna and feedline performance with an SWR meter on low power before increasing power to maximum.
  • Do not overdrive the RF input of the amplifier.
  • Do not operate the amplifier without a 50 ohm antenna or overrated dummy load connected to the antenna output.
  • Do not operate your amplifier in hazardous environments - ie service stations, mines, etc
  • Regularly or continuously test your antenna and feed line SWR for unexpected performance issues.
  • Disconnect the antenna if lightning or storm activity is occurring nearby. 
  • Do not touch the antenna or exposed antenna connections when transmitting.
  • Stop transmitting immediately if a fault appears.
