144MHz Linear Complete

Comments Off on 144MHz Linear Complete

This evening saw the completion of my 144MHz 500w linear amplifier. Could only get about 450 watts out of it even though the FET is rated at 600w. Pushed it a little to far on the input (5w) and caused it to break down. Ordered a new FET and now know the limits. Should be back on the air in a week or so.
