SDC-104I
AUTOMATIC SCREW DRIVER CONTROLER, ICOM (620-8004)


$ 159.95 each
Automatically tunes your screwdriver antenna as you tune your transceiver!

Super accurate tuning . . . Ultra-fast . . . Extremely Reliable . . . 88 memories . . . StallProtector . . .Fully RFI protected . . .Easy-to-use . . . Compact . . . Works with most screwdriver antennas and Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu, Elecraft transceivers . . .

Ameritron AutomaticTune mode automatically tunes your screwdriver antenna for lowest SWR as you tune your transceiver!

You get super accurate, ultra-fast and extremely reliable tuning with 88 programmable memories.

You also get a Stationary Tune mode that lets you tune your transceiver without your antenna constantly moving - - then touch TUNE when you’re ready.

Or you can use ManualTune mode by simply touching up/down buttons until you reach your desired frequency.

Precision four digit LED readout gives you antenna position, motor current and transceiver frequency -- it’s so bright you can even read it in direct sunlight.

Its super compact, ergonomic design is so intuitive to use you’ll never need the instruction book!

3 5/8W x 3 1/2H x 1 5/8D inches fits anywhere.

Fully RFI protected with RF chokes and bypass capacitors on incoming and outgoing wires and other sensitive points. All aluminum RF-tight cabinet. Completely eliminates troublesome RFI problems. Ameritron’s exclusive StallProtector prevents your expensive motor from burning out. It auto-detects motor stall and shuts off power to the motor completely. Current
limit is adjustable 100 mA to 4.9A in 100 mA increments.

Menu allows change of motor direction without physically reversing wires.

Works with single/dual magnetic sensor screwdriver antennas.

Includes interface cable for your transceiver, power, motor control and sensor wires. Specify Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu or Elecraft.


ALS-1306
AMPLIFIER, HF+6M, SOLID STATE, 1200 W PEP, 220 VAC


$ 3299 each
Ameritron HF+6 1200W Solid State Amplifier 1.5-54 MHz . . . 1200 Watts PEP Output, Instant Automatic band switching, no tuning, no warm-up, SWR protected, Quiet Variable-Speed Cooling . . . PEP FWD/REF Metering...PA Balance /ALC Metering and LED Indicator . . . Front Panel Band/Error LEDs . . . more!

ALS-1306 reliability is insured by using eight rugged MRF-150 power FETs. They are mounted on the dual heavy duty heat sink and properly arranged to spread out the heat over a large surface. This is something that other amplifiers using a single power device cannot do. Some FETs actually are a package of several transistors in one large case. This concentrates all of the heat in one small package. They not only are more difficult to cool, if one transistor fails, they all have to be replaced.

The ALS-1306 RF deck operates at 50 Volts for efficient, low distortion linear RF power service. It’s cooled by a whisper quiet cooling fan. Fan speed is regulated by temperature sensors, assuring minimum noise for adequate cooling.

1200 Watts SSBOutput Power Covers 1.5-54 MHz (HF+ 6Meters!)

ALS-1306 runs up to 1200 Watts of clean SSB output power (just 100 Watts drive gives you the full rated 1200 Watts output) for continuous coverage between 1.5-54 MHz. 10/12 Meters is already included.

Operator-friendly layout fits nearly any station configuration. The attractive desktop amplifier unit weighs only 22 pounds. Compact 10W x 6 1/2H x 18 1/2D inches.

SWR Protection prevents amplifier damage if you switch to a wrong band, use the wrong antenna or have a high SWR. Over-power protection enables if output forward power or reflected power exceeds a safe level.

Output power is automatically reduced to prevent amplifier damage by controlling ALC to exciter.

LED-illuminated Cross-Needle SWR/Wattmeter lets you read SWR, forward and reflected peak power simultaneously. You also get ALC, SWR, PA balance and current metering with LED back-light. An Operate/Standby switch lets you run “barefoot”, but you can instantly switch to full power if needed.

Front-panel ALC control!

This exclusive Ameritron feature lets you adjust output power on the convenient front panel display. You get front panel operation, band and error LED indicators like reflected power and bandswitch errors.

Automatic Band Switching!

Put your amplifier and power supply out-of-the-way! Control your amplifier directly from your rig!

ALS-1306 automatic band switching capability reads band data from your transceiver and automatically changes bands as
you make adjustments on your transceiver. An optional interface cable is required for your particular radio. See DB cable section on page 100.

Clean, Modular Construction

Unlike other solid state amplifier designs that are packed so tightly they are unserviceable, Ameritron’s ALS-1306 amplifier construction is super-clean with easy-service modular construction.

ALS-1306 Power Supply

The ALS-1306 is powered by a 50 VDC switching power supply. Comes with a pre-wired cable to plug into the ALS-1306.

This hash-free fully regulated swtiching power supply is only 12 lbs. and measures a compact 10W x 6 1/2H x 9 1/2D
inches. It can be placed conveniently out-of-the-way at your operating station. Output is 50 VDC at 50 Amps to the
ALS-1306. Wired for 220 VAC, selectable to 110 VAC. Draws less than 25Amps at 110 VAC; 12A@220 VAC.

It doesn’t get any better than this . . . Call your favorite dealer for your best price today! You’ve worked hard for a long time, it’s time for you to play hard too!


ARB-704
AMP TO XCVR INTERFACE, FOR ALL XCVR


$ 59.95 each
Ameritron Amplifier-to-Transceiver Interface
The ARB-704 will work with almost any transceiver without the need for a plug-and-play pre-wired cable.

The ARB-704 advanced interface is compatible with all common radios and amplifiers even though radios and amplifiers do not have standardized voltages, accessory plugs, or wiring. This interface is designed to work with any amplifier/radio combination.

The input is designed to be compatible with any transmitter or transceiver, and the output is compatible with AC control lines or DC positive or negative amplifier control lines having up to 200 Volts peak open circuit voltage and 300 mA of operating current.

Why you need the ARB-704
Amplifiers can damage radios if the amplifier has too much relay control voltage, voltage spikes, or excessive current on the relay control line. Such damage often appears as "stuck" or "sticky" transmit relays in exciters or shorted transistors on transmit control lines. In most cases where the radio is damaged, the system transmits normally but the external amplifier stays locked in a "transmit" mode. This prevents receive signals from coming through the amplifier with normal levels whenever the amplifier is in the "ON" or "OPERATE" position.

The ARB-704 has many electrical advantages over conventional relay buffer systems. The ARB-704 has no moving parts, switches almost instantaneously. It is noiseless, has very long life, and will not develop dirty contacts. It operates with negative, AC, or positive amplifier relay control lines.

It works with any relay voltage(AC, positive or negative) up to 200 peak volts and any relay current up to 300 mA. The ARB-704 is fully compatible with conventional amplifier relay systems. It is especially suited for buffering vacuum relay QSK amplifiers, since the ARB-704 does not affect attack or release times in a deleterious manner.

The ARB-704 operates with transmitters or transceivers that pull amplifier control lines to ground, or output a wide range of positive or negative control voltages. The transmitter only switches currents under .35 milliamperes and very low voltages when using the ARB-704. Measures a super compact 4 ¼" x 1 ¾" x 2 ¼".

The ARB-704 is supplied with the following:
1. One power connector cord and plug with red wire (+12 Volts) and black wire (negative and ground).

2. Three phono (RCA) cord with connectors on each end. These cables are for relay, ALC and amplifier control lines.
