The Ameritron AL-82 Linear Amplifier is designed to give you years of trouble free service at the full legal output power limit.
An 1800 watt continuous commercial rated Hypersil transformer is standard with heavy duty rectifiers in a full wave bridge supply with computer capacitors. Two bias settings allow either high efficiency RTTY and CW operation at 1500 watts of output at nearly 70% plate efficiency or low distortion 1500 watts PEP, SSB or SSTV output.
The cooling system keeps the components and tube safely below the manufacturer's ratings, even while operating at 1500 watts output with a steady carrier. The filament supply has inrush current limiting to insure maximum tube life. Shielding and by-passing help prevent TVI and RFI at the high power levels in the AL-82.
