AL-811 . . . 600 WATTS . . . $799!
More hams use Ameritron AL-811 amplifiers than any other amplifier in the world
. . . The AL-811 has earned a worldwide reputation for legendary quality,
flawless performance, proven reliability and superb customer service . . .
Ameritron’s AL-811 linear
amplifier gives you plenty of
power to bust through QRM!
You get a quiet desktop linear that’s so compact it’ll slide
right into your operating position -- you’ll hardly know it’s
there . . . until QRM sets in. And
you can conveniently plug it
into your nearest 120 VAC outlet -- no special wiring needed.
You get three tough 811A
transmitting tubes, extra heavy
duty power supply, all HF band
coverage, pressurized ventilation,
tuned input, dual illuminated
meters, adjustable ALC and much
more for an incredible $799!
The First 600 Watts
makes the difference
The AL-811 gives you 600
Watts PEP output -- that’s nearly 2 full S-units over your barefoot rig. That could mean the
difference between hearing,
“You’re Q-5 armchair copy”
and “Sorry, can’t copy you, too
much QRM.”
Now you won’t have to
stand aside while the big guns
steal your DX. You’ll log some
of those stations first.
All band, all mode Coverage
AL-811 covers all HF
bands. No compromise on
WARC and most MARS bands
-- you get a 100% rated output.
Operate AL-811 on all
modes. Get 600 Watts output
PEP SSB and 500 Watts output
CW. You even get 300 Watts
on continuous carrier modes
like RTTY, SSTV, and FM.
The low cost 811A tubes
resists failure because . . .
First, they’re constructed with
widely spaced elements that
minimize the chance of elements touching and causing a
short -- even if the plate gets
hot enough to melt.
Second, they use a directly
88
load. That’s excellent
high voltage regulation!
Rectifier diodes are
rated for a massive surge
current of 200 amps-won’t blow even if you
accidentally short the
high voltage supply.

A full wave bridge using
67.5 mfd of total capacitance

designed for optimum Q on
each band and built with top
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 won’t
damage tubes/tank components.
A ball bearing vernier
reduction drive makes plate
tuning safe, precise and easy.
A quiet blower pressurizes
the cabinet with a large volume
of air flow. It keeps the 811A
tube temperature well below the
tube manufacturer’s 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 checks for
improper loading. The other
meter switches be-tween high
voltage and plate current to
warn of abnormal conditions.
Exclusive Adapt-A-VoltTM

them to wear out and fail. Too
low line voltage causes a “soft

Ameritron’s exclusive

winding that lets you compensate for stressful high line voltage and performance robbing
low line voltage. Your components last longer and gives you
peak performance -- regardless

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.

AMERITRON Amplifier-to-Transceiver Interface
Protects expensive radio from damage by keying line transients and steady state current and voltages
ARB-704 will work with almost
any transceiver without the need of
the plug-and-play pre-wired cable.
The ARB-704 advanced interface
is compatible with all common radios
and amplifiers even though radios and
amplifiers do not have standardized voltages, accessory plugs, or wiring. It’s
designed to work with any
amplifier/radio combination.
The input is designed to be compatible with any transmitter or transceiver,
and the output is compatible with AC
control lines or DC positive or negative
amplifier control lines having up to 200
Volts peak open circuit voltage and 300
mA of operating current.
Why you need the ARB-704
Amplifiers can damage radios if the
amplifier has too much relay control voltage, voltage spikes, or excessive current
on the relay control line. Such damage
often appears as “stuck” or “sticky”
transmit relays in exciters or shorted transistors on transmit control lines. In most
cases where the radio is damaged, the
system transmits normally but the external amplifier stays locked in a “transmit”
mode. This prevents receive signals from

noisy mechanical vacuum relays, the QSK5 is extremely quiet -- there’s no relay
chatter keeping you from enjoying QSK.
You won’t have to pay for QSK again
if you buy another amplifier. Unplug the
QSK-5 and use it with your new amp.
Handles 2500 Watts PEP and 2000
Watts CW in normal amateur service
when SWR is below 1.5:1. Handles 750
Watts on continuous carrier modes such
as RTTY, SSTV, and FM. Optional cooling fan (CF-5, $39.95) allows sustained
operation at 1500 Watts in any mode.
Use with positive voltage keying up to +25
Volts. 6Dx4Hx91/2W”.

The ATP-100
Amplifier SaverTM
lets you safely tune
up your linear
amp-lifier perfectly for full power output
and best linearity.
It protects your expensive amplifier
from overheating, tube damage, power
supply stress and arc-over during tuneup. It prevents premature failure and
costly component replacements.
AMERITRON’s innovative pulse
tuning technology lets you tune your
amplifier at full peak output power for
best linearity. It keeps average power to
a low safe level to prevent overheating
and power supply stress.
96
“Why can’t I just tune up at low
power to reduce overheating and component stress?” you ask yourself. Well you
can . . . but if you don’t re-tune at high
power (which causes overheating) you can
create severe splatter and abuse your tube
grids because of excessive grid current.
If your linear uses tubes that are easily
damaged by normal tune-up, the ATP-100
could extend tube life.
“Sniff-out” RFI or TVI caused by
rusty guy wires, rain gutters, clotheslines
and others by generating full peak power
without amplifier damage. Also use to
evaluate wattmeters and QSK systems.
Set and forget internal trimpots let you
tailor duty cycle and pulse rate precisely
for your rig and amplifier. Plugs into
your rig’s CW key jack. Simply press
Pulse Tune button and tune your amplifier normally for maximum power output.
Locking Pulse Tune and momentary

Suggested
Retail
AMERITRON's SDA-100 is the best
built, best looking, best performing HF
mobile screwdriver antenna in the world!
Properly installed on your vehicle this
antenna covers 80-10 Meters with a 6 foot
whip. Remove the whip for 40-6 Meters.
What makes our antennas stand above
all the rest is that our CNC machined components are from aircraft aluminum or stainless steel and blueprinted, meaning you can
take the antennas apart and mix them up,
then reassemble and they work the same.
Our fiberglass coil form is approximately 2 inches in diameter. Other antenna
builders know fiberglass is better but they
choose not to use it because of the expense
and difficulty in machining. We use 14
gauge wire for high power capability,
wound at eight turns an inch for maximum
efficiency. We machine groove our coils so
they will not loosen up or jam -- they won't
wear out, for years of trouble free service!
New Lexan cover is super durable and
protects your Ameritron screwdriver for
years of trouble-free service.
The decoupler we use is CNC machined
for tight tolerances with custom fingerstock designed to contact 3 turns of coil all
the time with over 25 pounds of combined
contact pressure. With this design you can
run up to 1.2 kilowatts PEP, trouble free.
It's so superior to anything else on the market that we put our outstanding AMERITRON warranty behind it.
We use a new heavy duty Pittman commercial 12 volt gear motor, which is very
durable and quiet while receive tuning.
This motor is super heavy duty for years of
trouble-free service. Antennas come with
sensors already installed so if you add an
auto controller, everything is ready.
The AMERITRON SDA-100 includes:
Up/Down switch; 5 feet of motor DC
cable with detachable weather sealed connector; decoupling toroid matching coils.
SDA-100 comes in a handsome black,
using Dupont Basecoat/Clearcoat system.
Optional accessories:
SDM-100, $99.95. Stainless steel
flange mount base bracket , with multiple pre-punched holes. The SDA-100
mounting rod is a 1-in. pipe thread

AMERITRON Automatic Remote Antenna Coax Switch
Automatically reads data from your transceiver and selects up to 8 pre-programmed antennas . . .
The RCS-12 is an automatic remote
antenna switch. It reads information from
the transceiver and selects the pre-programmed antenna automatically. Programming is as easy as a push of a button.
It works with most Icom,Yaesu, Kenwood
and other rigs that have a band data output
line. It has a manual/automatic switch that
will allow manual selection of antennas as
well. It has eight LEDs to indicate which
antenna is selected.
RCS-12 stops expensive antenna
switching damage. No HOT switching
with the RCS-12! It's late at night, there's
a run of stations going, and the operator
pushes a button. SWR shoots up! Even if
the SWR Watch Protection kicks in, you
still lose your run frequency while you
look to see what happened, if you notice
at all! At best you only lose your run frequency; at worse you lose an amplifier or
antenna switch.
You've learned a painful lesson! The
cost of a blown bandswitch or antenna
relay pales in comparison to the price of a
contest. You'll never know if this was your
year because a split-second error turned
you from a winner to a loser. It's another
year before you can try again.
With a properly connected and programmed RCS-12 it is impossible to pick
the wrong antenna. It is impossible to
damage equipment by switching antennas
while transmitting.
You no longer have to hover over guest
operators like a mother hen; RCS-12 will
not let them make an antenna switching
mistake. Ameritron’s RCS-12 is compati-
When the radio changes bands the
RCS-12 goes to the last antenna used
for that band.
RCS-12 makes it impossible to
put the radio on the wrong antenna.
