AMPLIFIERS


HF – RA100 / RA500D / RA1000D

Datron offers high-power amplifiers to complement its 7000-series transceivers. These amplifiers are available in models ranging from 100W to 1kW, and come in both professional and military versions. In conjunction with a 7000-series transceiver, a modem, and appropriate data software package, these amplifiers can be used as part of a high powered radio data network.

The RA100 is a 100W HF linear RF Amplifier designed for use with exciters operating in the 1.6 to 30 MHz frequency band to form high-power HF systems. The amplifier interfaces seamlessly with Datron’s PRC1099A HF transceiver and MT1099A mount and also can be used with any transmitter having an appropriate power output and a compatible DC power and control interface.

The 500W and 1000W HF linear RF amplifiers are designed for use with exciters operating in the 1.6 to 30 MHz frequency band to form high-power HF systems. The amplifiers interface seamlessly with Datron’s RT7000 HF transceiver and can be used with any transmitter having an appropriate power output and compatible control interface.


VHF – AM1077 / AM2100

The AM-1077 is a 50W VHF linear RF amplifier designed for use with exciters operating in the 30 to 88 MHz frequency band to form high-power VHF systems. Shock resistant and moisture proof per MIL-STD-810, the AM-1077’s rugged compact and lightweight design make it ideal for mobile or base station systems.

The AM-1077 is suitable for use with Datron’s PRC1077 VHF transceiver and MT-1077 mount with AM1077ADPT adapter and also can be used with any VHF transmitter having an appropriate power output and compatible DC power and control interface including the AN/PRC77.


The AM2100 is a 75W VHF linear RF amplifier designed for use with exciters operating in the 30 to 88 MHz frequency band to form high-power VHF systems. The AM2100 is shock resistant and moisture proof per MIL-STD-810 and ideal for mobile or base station systems.

The amplifier interfaces seamlessly with Datron’s Spectre V® series (PRC2100V, PRC2150) of VHF transceivers and MT2100 mobile power adapter and also can be used with any VHF transmitter having an appropriate power output and compatible DC power and control interface.


TW500D

The TW500D is a 500W HF Linear RF Amplifier designed for continuous duty use with an exciter unit operating in the 1.6 to 30 MHz frequency band to form a 500W high-power HF communication system.

TW1000D 

The TW1000D is a 1000W HF Linear RF Amplifier designed for continuous duty use with an exciter unit operating in the 1.6 to 30 MHz frequency band to form a 1kW high-power HF communication system.


TUNERS


RAT7000B

The AT7000B is a 125W HF automatic antenna tuner specifically designed to interface with Datron’s TW7000 HF transceiver to tune whip and long-wire antennas. It features internal VSWR monitoring and rapid digital tuning capability and has 100 channel memory capability for scanning or silent tune applications. The tuner is immersible and designed to operate under severe environmental conditions.

RAT1000C

The RAT1000C is a 1kW automatic antenna tuner developed to interface directly with Datron’s TW7000 HF transceiver and can also be used with any HF transceiver having an appropriate RF power output and control interface. The RAT1000C operates with most whip and long-wire antennas to 50m in length and includes 100 memory channels for scanning or silent tuning applications.

AT7000B

The AT7000B is a 125W HF automatic antenna tuner specifically designed to interface with Datron’s TW7000 HF transceiver to tune whip and long-wire antennas. It features internal VSWR monitoring and rapid digital tuning capability and has 100 channel memory capability for scanning or silent tune applications. The tuner is immersible and designed to operate under severe environmental conditions.


ANTENNAS


HF ANTENNAS

One of the most critical aspects of good HF communications is the choice and deployment of the antenna system. Care taken in the selection of the antenna, its location and installation, and matching to the associated transmitter are the most important factors in ensuring strong, reliable communications.

The antenna system should be carefully matched and the VSWR should not exceed 1.5:1 for best results. Datron realizes the importance of using the proper antenna, and has a wide range of experience in determining the correct antenna for the specific user application.
