- Increases the use of SMT components, reducing build time and complexity - no transformer to wind. - Uses the ATU mounting holes so no drilling is required.
0.5 watts to 5 wattsDriverkit, which can be used as a final amplifier for a QRP project or to upgrade an existing HARDROCK-50 that was purchased without thedriver. SMT parts come pre-soldered, and the following through hole parts are supplied:
1 x RD16HHF1
1 x 6" RG-316 2 x 2-pin Terminal Blocks 3-Pin Header with bare wires Thermal Grease Mounting Hardware
This amplifier is intended for installation in a HARDROCK-50 power amplifier to lower the drive requirements or for general homebrewing. Thedriveramp covers 1.8 to 54 MHz and is not suitable for use with the RS-UV3 transceiver.
Thedriverkit, as supplied, does not have sufficient filtering to meet FCC Spurious Emissions requirements. If you intend to use thedriveramp as a stand-alone 5W amplifier and connect its output to an antenna, additional filtering is required.
Details for using theDriverAmp for use as a stand-alone 5W amplifier are available on theDriverAmp technical information page:
