Help with finding a 13cm Power Amp Please

Post by G0RBG » Tue Jul 09, 2024 7:44 pm

I am new to DATV and the BATC, and now wish to progress from my current 70cm Terrestrial to QO100. I have spent many hours reading the back issues of CQ-TV, searching the forum, Google and Wiki. I have found a wealth of knowledge for which I am grateful to you all. I have chosen the Pluto, driver amp, PA route, and with the dish / helix and feeder length combination I have, I need to run about 40w, so ideally I am looking for an RF amp of 80w or more. I really don't have the experience at this frequency to build my own, and my searches have so far only sent me to sites where suitable RF amps are out of stock, or no longer available. If anyone has any suggestions where I might try to purchase a complete amp, I would be very grateful. Of course if you have anything suitable that is now surplus to requirements, please let me know.
Thank for any help you can offer.

I'd contact James (Jim) Smith in Kettering and see if he has any power amps that he's modded available. He keeps a keen eye on stuff from Poland and often has units available either as bare boards or mounted on a heat sink, boxed, with fans and plug and play connectors.

Good luck.
