Generating 100 Watts of output from as little as 5 Watts of input, the Model 418 Amplifier raises the bar for reliable and efficient recreational, emergency, and even contest communications.
TEN-TEC Engineers have utilized state of the art, silicon MOSFET technology to allow continuous 100% duty cycle operation in both CW and SSB modes. The model 418 is also compliant with AM, FM, AFSK, and PSK modes of operation. This amplifier also offers full CW QSK.
Measuring only 3.625" X 6.5" X 7.6" inches and weighing just 5.4 lbs, the Model 418 will operate from any 13.8VDC (+/- 15%), 20 Amp power source.
Designed to interface with the new TEN-TEC Model 539 QRP Transceiver, the Model 418 amplifier can be easily connected to most low power transmitter designs (1 to 20 Watts). The amplifier's comprehensive User's Manual and TEN-TEC's industry standard Technical Support department make set up quick and easy.
The Model 418 can switch bands automatically or manually. It also has a two position manual antenna switch. Bypass operation allows low power operation until higher power is needed. RF Sensing will automatically switch bands for you when the 418 is keyed with other rigs providing the delta button is turned off
The Model 418's large LCD front panel readout gives the operator essential information about Output Power, SWR, Operating Voltage, and even Operating Temperature.
