AL-811
HF AMP, 600W, (3) 811A TUBES


$ 849 each
Ameritron Al-811 linear amplifier gives you plenty power to bust thru QRM.

You get a quiet desktop linear thats so compact itll slide right into your station -- youll hardly know its there ... until QRM sets in. Conveniently plug it into your nearest 120 VAC outlet -- no special wiring needed. Three tough 811A transmitting tubes, extra heavy duty power supply, all HF band coverage, pressurized ventilation, tuned input, dual illuminated meters, adjustable ALC & more.



The first 600 watts make the difference
The Al-811 gives you 600 watts PEP output -- thats nearly 2 full S-units over your barefoot rig. That could mean the difference between hearing, "Youre Q-5 armchair copy" and, "Sorry cant copy you, too much QRM." Now you wont have to stand aside while the "big guns" steal your DX. Youll be able to log some of those stations first. Going from 600 watts to the full legal limit gives you less than one S-unit increase. But is that fraction of an S-unit worth the 3 or 4 times more money itll cost you? AL-811 gives you a powerful punch at a price thats easy on your wallet.

All band, All mode coverage
The AL-811 covers all HF bands. Theres no compromise on WARC and most MARS bands -- you get 100% rated output. You can operate the AL-811 on all modes. Get 600 watts output PEP SSB and 500 watts output CW. You even get 400 watts on demanding continuous modes like RTTY, SSTV, FM and AM.

How the low cost 811A tube resists premature failure -- even when your amplifier is mistuned
First theyre constructed with widely spaced elements that minimize the chance of touching and causing a short -- even if the plate gets hot enough to melt. Second they use a directly heated thoriated tungsten filament cathode that prevents the electron emitting layer from instantly stripping off -- even if mistuning causes a sudden, sever current overload. The Ameritron AL-811 is excellent for the newcomer because its tough enough to withstand momentary mistuning. And the tubes are so inexpensive that you can replace one for mere pocket change.

The Ameritron advantage: Extra heavy duty power supply gives you peak performance year after year
The heart of the AL-811 power supply is its heavy duty power transformer with high silicon steel core weighing a hefty 17 pounds. A full wave bridge using 52.5 ufd of total capacitance (four 210 ufd, 470 volt capacitors) produces 1500 volts under full load and 1700 volts no load. Thats excellent high voltage regulation! Full height computer grade filter capacitors with screw terminals are used -- not short stubby. light duty soldered-in "high technology" capacitors that cant dissipate the heat generated by high current.
Rectifier diodes are rated for a massive surge current of 200 amps. They wont blow even if you accidentally short the high voltage supply. Wire wound, 7 watt, 50 K ohm equalizing resistors safely protect each filter capacitor -- not 2 watt, 100 K ohm carbon composition resistors that can open and cause your filter capacitors to explode or fail. The Ameritron AL-811 power supply is built tough so you get peak performance year after year.

Tuned input provides excellent load for any rig
A Pi-Network tuned input provides a 50 ohm load for your rig. Even fussy solid state rigs can deliver their full drive to AL-811. Low loss slug tuned coils -- tunable from the rear panel -- let you optimize performance. High quality low drift silver mica capacitors maintain proper tuning.

Output tank: optimum Q on each band
the low loss pi-network output tank of the AL-811 has been carefully designated for optimum Q on each band and built with quality RF components. The result is peak performance over each band, wide impedance matching range and exceptionally smooth tuning with efficiencies close to 70%. Even a 3:1 SWR load wont damage the tubes or tank components. A ball bearing vernier reduction drive makes plate tuning precise and easy.

Quiet pressurized ventilation keeps your tubes safely cooled
A quiet blower pressurizes the cabinet with a large volume of air flow. It keeps the 811A tube temperature well below the tube manufacturers rating -- even with a key down carrier at 400 watts output -- without the overwhelming noise of oversized fans.

Two illuminated meters
Two illuminated meters give you a clear picture of your AL-811 operating conditions so you can tell right away if something is wrong. the Grid Current meter continuously check for improper loading. The other meter switches between high voltage and plate current to warn of abnormal conditions.

Ameritron exclusive Adapt-A-Volt power transformer
Too high line voltage stresses components and causes them to wear out and fail. Too low line voltage causes a "soft-tube" effect -- low output and signal distortion. Ameritrons exclusive Adapt-A-Volt power transformer has a special buck-boost winding that lets you compensate for stressful high line voltage and performance robbing low line voltage. This makes your components last longer and gives you peak performance -- regardless of your line voltage.

QSK Compatible
For lightning fast QSK operation, use the optional external QSK-5, electronic PIN diode switch.

Plus More...
An Operate/Standby switch lets you run barefoot, but you can instantly switch to full power if needed.

A transmit LED tells you when your rig is keying your AL-811.

A 12 VDC keying relay makes it compatible with solid state and tube rigs. Built-in back-pulse canceling diode protects your rigs keying circuit.

Shielded RF compartment. One year limited warranty. UPS shippable. Shipped with transformer installed and wired for 120 VAC. Draws 8 amps at 120 VAC.

AL-82
AMPLIFIER, TWO 3-500Z,


$ 2995 each
Ameritron`s Dual 3-500Z Amplifier

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. Silver plated tank components provide high efficiency operation above 20 meters. The Pi-L tank circuit permits full impedance matching capability over the entire 160 meter band. The tuning capacitors and bandswitch have a 35% safety factor to virtually eliminate tank circuit component failures, even under adverse operating conditions.

The cooling system keeps the components and tube safely below the manufacturers 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.

The AL-82 has two illuminated meters. One is the Grid Current Meter that provides a continuous reading of the 3-500ZG grid current. This is an Ameritron first. Grid current indicates proper amplifier performance better than any other parameter. The other is a multi-meter that displays plate voltage, plate current, peak R.F. output power and drive power/ALC detector voltage. Some competing amplifiers using two 3-500ZGs cant deliver as much power as the AL-82. Why? Because the lightweight power supplies they use dont deliver enough high voltage to permit use of the full capability of the two 3-500ZGs. The AL-82 corrects this problem while still keeping the price at a reasonable level. The power supply in the AL-82 has a commercial service rated 32 pound tape wound Hypersil transformer and heavy duty rectifiers in a full wave bridge circuit with computer grade capacitors. No load voltage is 3600 V; full load voltage 3300V -- better than most competing dual 3-500ZG amplifiers.

Examine the features and component ratings of the AL-82 is a well engineered amplifier, built to give you years of power house service.

AL-1500
AMPLIFIER, HIGH POWER, ONE 3CX-1500/8877


$ 4195 each
Ameritron’s AL-1500 Amplifier with Eimac® 3CX1500A7
Feel the need for maximum legal HF output power? AMERITRON’s AL-1500 will give it to you.

Using the Herculean 3CX1500A/8877 ceramic tube with its high power gain, the AL-1500 needs only 65 watts of drive from your exciter to deliver the goods-- transceivers and other exciters just loaf at 1500 watts out.

Cool, efficient operation is provided by a forced-air system with tube chimney, using a commercial grade die-cast ball bearing blower for maximum tube life. The tube is further protected by time delay starting and automatic over-current shutoff to remove drive power if the amplifier is mis-tuned.

You get full legal power output from a whisper quiet desktop linear. Measures 18 ½" x 17" x 10" inches, and covers all bands, 160-15 Meters, including WARC and MARS (80% of full output set to nearest amateur band). 10/12 Meters modifiable.

You get 1500 watts output (1/2 hour continuous carrier) and 2500 watts (30 second continuous carrier and 2500 watts- plus 30 minute PEP two-tone test). You get all this power, plus, 65% efficiency, pi-net-work tuned input, Pi/Pi-Loutput, inrush current protection, multi-voltage transformer, QSK compatability, and a one-year warranty.

The guts of the AL-1500 is its heavy duty
power supply, with a 32 lb. Hypersil® transformer using a high silicone steel core, computer grade capacitors (33 mfd total), heavy duty bleeders and twenty 3 amp, 1000 volt power rectifiers give you a stiff 3300 volts fully loaded.

The AL-1500 is built on a rugged steel chassis with a separate RF compartment fully shielded to keep RF from leaking out, keeping RFI and TVI to a minimum.

Superb RF design and layout, Hi-Q tank circuit and commercially rated RF power components give you 65% plate efficiency over the entire operating range. Power goes into the antenna instead of into heat.

50-ohm broadband Pi-Network tuned input with slug-tuned coils is used. Even fussy solid state transmitters deliver full power!

A carefully designed Pi/Pi-Loutput network using the optimum Q for each band with vernier ball drives gives smooth tuning, wide matching range, full band coverage, and peak performance at all power levels.

The AL-1500’s grid overload circuit protects the tube from excessive grid current; if 175 mA of peak gric current is reached, the “OPR” LED will no longer light and the amplifier will go into a bypass condition until reset by the operator.

Transformer provides many options
Since excessive line voltage stresses components (low line voltage causes a “soft tube” effect, for example), Ameritron’s exclusive Multi-Voltage Power Transformer™ lets you optimize for different line voltages. Select from 4 different primary voltage ranges, from 205-219 VAC to 252 to 265 VAC. The amplifier comes wired from the factory for 240 VAC.

The AL-1500 has two illuminated panel meters. Grid Current meter provides continuous reading of the critical grid current and indicates proper, safe amplifier operation.

The other meter can be selected to read Plate Voltage, Plate Current, Peak RF Watts, or ALC. A SSB/CW selector switch chooses bias voltage for best linearity on SSB or lowest dissipation on CW.

The Operate/Standby switch, in Standby, maintains the tube’s filament and plate voltages while allowing “barefoot” operation.

Includes 12 volt DC auxiliary jack and an “XMT” LED to provide indication of proper amplifier keying by the exciter.

You get up to a full kilowatt PEP output from a whisper quiet desktop linear. Its a compact 8.5" x 15.5" x 14.5" and plugs into your nearest 120VAC outlet. Covers all bands 160-15 meters, including WARC and MARS (user modified for 10/12 meters with license). You get up to 1000 watts output on SSB, 800 watts output on CW, 500 watts output on RTTY, an extra heavy duty power supply, genuine 3-500 tube, nearly 70% efficiency, tuned input, Pi/Pi-L output, inrush current protection, multi-voltage transformer, dual Cross-Needle meters, QSK compatibility, Two Year Warranty, Made in USA, plus much more.

Dynamic ALC doubles average SSB power
The AL-80Bs exclusive Dynamic ALC gives you high-level low-distortion RF processing. When activated, it can more than double your average SSB power and produce up to 6 dB improvement in intelligibility. It maximizes your talk power without distortion and splatter. A convenient front panel control lets you adjust your output power level.

Instantaneous RF Bias eliminates heat
The AL-80Bs exclusive Instantaneous RF Bias completely turns off the 3-500 tube (except filaments) between words and dots and dashes. it eliminates hundreds of watts wasted as heat to give you cooler operation and longer component life.

Guts Heavy-Duty Power Supply
The guts of the AL-80B is its heavy duty power supply. A 26 pound transformer using a high silicone steel core, computer grade capacitors, heavy duty bleeders and ten 3 amp, 1000 V power rectifiers give you a stiff 2700 volts fully loaded. Many amplifiers using two 3-500s use such small power supplies they dont deliver much more power output than the AL-80B.

Genuine 3-500ZG Tube
The AL-80B uses a genuine 3-500ZG tube warranted by the manufacturer -- not cheaper, less reliable 3-500s used by some competitors.

70% efficiency
The AL-80B is built on a rugged steel chassis. It has a separate RF compartment thats fully shielded to keep RF from leaking out. This keeps RFI and TVI to a minimum. Superb RF design and layout, Hi-Q tank circuit and commercially rated RF power components give you nearly 70% plate efficiency over most of the amateur bands. You power goes into your antenna instead of heating up your amplifier. A whisper quiet internal fan draws in cool air over power supply components and pressurizes the 3-500 tube compartment to remove heat for longest life.

Tuned Input lets your rig deliver full output
A 50 ohm broadband Pi-Network tuned input is used. Even the fussiest solid state transmitter will deliver full power to your AL-80B. Low loss slug tuned coils -- tunable from the rear panel -- let you optimize performance.

Pi/Pi-L Output Network
A carefully designed Pi/Pi-L output network using the optimum Q for each band gives you exceptionally smooth tuning, extremely wide matching range, full band coverage and peak performance at all power levels. Ball bearing venier reduction drives with logging scales on both the plate and load controls make tuning precise and easy. It also lets you rapidly retune to your favorite frequency.

Step-Start Inrush Protection
When you first turn on your amplifier, a massive inrush current flows. Your house lights flicker as you hear a load "thump" from your amplifier. This terrible inrush current stresses all your power supply components to their limits. Your cold tube filament suffers abusive thermal shock. Eventually, this massive inrush current will damage your amplifier. The AL-80B special Step-Start Inrush Protection stop damaging inrush current. By starting your AL-80B through a 10 ohm current limiting resistor, then shorting the resistor with a relay, the AL-80B gives you a start up sequence thats easy on your tube and power supply components.

Multi-Voltage Power Transformer
Excessive line voltage stresses components and causes them to wear out. Low line voltage causes a "soft-tube" effect -- low output and signal distortion. Ameritrons exclusive Multi-Voltage Power Transformer lets you optimize for different line voltage. Select from 14 different primary voltages from 90 - 140 VAC and 205 to 250 VAC. The high voltage secondary can be wired to reduce plate voltage for efficient operation below 400 watts for use outside the USA.

Dual Illuminated Cross-Needle Meters
Ameritrons dual illuminated cross-needle meters give you four separate meters to monitor your operating conditions -- you can tell right away if something is wrong. Grid current, plate current and forward PEP output power are continuously monitored to tell you of improper loading and abnormal conditions. The fourth meter can be switched to monitor you 3-500 tube DC plate voltage, reflected PEP power and the SWR of your antenna, ALC voltage to your rig and the grid current that starts ALC action -- you get a clear operating picture of your AL-80B.

QSK Compatible
For lightning fast QSK operation use the optional Ameritron electronic PIN diode QSK switch. Get the external QSK switch (QSK-5) or the Internal Switch (QSK-5PC).

Plus More...
An Operate/Standby switch lets you run barefoot, but you can instantly switch to full power if you need it. Has transmit LED; 12 VDC, 200 mA accessory jack; 12 VDC keying relay for solid state and tube rigs; tough, nearly indestructible Lexan front panel. Shipped with transformer installed and wired for 120 VAC. Draws 12 amps at 120 VAC.

ALS-1300
HF AMP, 1200 WATT SOLID STATE, 220 VAC


$ 2899 each
The AMERITRON ALS-1300 is a solid state near legal limit™ FET no-tune Amplifier. Get instant bandswitching, no tuning, no warm-up, no tubes to baby and no fuss!

The reliability of the ALS-1300 is insured by using eight rugged MRF-150 power FETs. Ameritron’s eight FETs are mounted on the dual heavy duty heat sink. They are properly arranged to spread out the heat over a large surface, 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-1300 RF deck operates from 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.

ALS-1300 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 1.5-22 MHz. 10/12 Meters available to licensed amateurs with an optional kit (MOD-10MK). Must present FCC license at time of sale.

The operator-friendly layout fits nearly any station configuration. The attractive desktop amplifier unit weighs only 22 pounds. Compact 10W x 6 1/2H x 18D inches. SWR Protection prevents amplifier damage if you switch to the wrong band, use the wrong antenna or have a high SWR. Overpower 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 transmit meter and LED indicators. 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 also get front panel Operation, Band, and error LED indicators like reflected power and bandswitch errors.

Enjoy 1200 Watts of no tune Solid State power with the Ameritron ALS-1300 amp.

But it gets even better than this! Do you want to place even the main ALS-1300 amplifier out of the way? Do you want the ALS-1300 to change bands automatically when you change bands on your radio?

You now have these options.
A pair of RJ45 remote control interface jacks on the amplifier permits ALS-1300 to be controlled either manually by the optional ALS-500RC Remote Control Head, or automatically by the optional ARI-500 Auto Band Switch.

The Automatic Band Switch reads band data from your transceiver and automatically changes the ALS-1300 bands as you change bands on your transceiver. A superclean layout with easy-service modular construction will give you years of operation.

ALS-1300SPS Power Supply
The ALS-1300 is powered by a 50 VDC switching power supply.Comes with pre-wired cable to plug into the ALS-1300.

This hash-free fully-regulated switching power supply is only 12 lbs. and measures a compact 10W x6 1/2H x9 1/2D in. It can be placed conveniently out-of-the-way at your operating station.
