4kW and 8kW Solid State RF amplifier at 352 MHz
Recently testing of newly designed 4kW, 60dB power gain amplifier, at 352 MHz, has been completed. Going ahead, for accomplishing final task of 30 kW RF power, design and assembly of 8kW amplifier racks 352 and 505.8 MHz has been started. All of the 40 numbers of 270W amplifier modules, 4 numbers of 16 way combiner/divider and directional couplers housing inside euro rack for achieving 8kW of RF power, have been developed and tested for first system. Presently assembly and integration of this 8kW amplifier is in progress. Photograph below shown four units of 8kW amplifiers with details of rigid coaxial line components and gain modules, for one such amplifier.
