• HF linear amplifier AL-572 for amateur radio

The Ameritron HF linear amplifier AL-572 represents a new class of quasi-legal limiting amplifiers. It gives you an almost full legal SSB power output for a fraction of the price of a legal limit amplifier and no one will ever know the difference. You get 1,300 watts of PEP SSB power on amateur radio bands, 160 to 15 meters, with the 10 and 12 meter change of operation available for licensed amateur radios. Four rugged, fully neutralized 572B tubes provide near-legal limit power and instantaneous 3-second warm-up time. These quiet, desktop, linear HF amplifiers plug into your nearest 120 Vac outlet, so no special wiring is needed. Each tube has a very strong graphite anode, a low loss ceramic base, a top titanium getter and legendary quality. Ameritron's exclusive ParasiticKiller effectively suppresses unwanted oscillations. You will typically obtain 1,300 watts of SSB PEP, 1,000 continuous CW watts and 1,000 watts of 2-tone PEP test on all 160 to 15 meter amateur radio bands (WARC bands and 10 meters with reduced performance - modified by user for 10/12 meters with license). The exclusive Ameritron instant RF bias completely extinguishes the amplifier 572B tubes between words and dots and dashes. This eliminates hundreds of wasted watts of heat for colder operation and longer component life. Ameritron's exclusive Dynamic ALC offers you high-level, low-distortion RF processing, as it can more than double your average SSB power. The front panel control allows you to adjust the output power. The high power supplies use a high silicon steel transformer that provides 2,500 V, 0.7 ampere with good regulation. The power supply of the plate uses a full-wave doubler, 200 amp peak current diodes, 7 Watt 50K ohm wire discharge resistors, and a computer grade capacitor bank totaling 26 ufd. Ameritron starter protection limits harmful inrush current to your power supply and filament when your amplifier is turned on. This significantly extends the life of the components and tubes of your AL-572 HF Amateur Radio Amplifier.
