The Ameritron AL-80B combines a single 3-500ZG power tube with a heavy-duty tank circuit for up to 70% plate efficiency. The AL-80B kilowatt amplifier has been completely redesigned and extensively improved. This desktop linear can double your average SSB power output with high-level RF processing using Ameritron's exclusive Dynamic ALC.
You get cooler operation because the AL-80B's exclusive instantaneous RF Bias completely turns off the 3-500ZG tube between words. It saves hundreds of watts wasted as heat. You get up to a full kilowatt PEP output from a whisper quiet desktop linear. It is only compact 8.5Hx15.5Dx14.5W inches and plugs into your nearest 120 VAC outlet.
