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.
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.
