HF LINEAR POWER AMPLIFIER
MODEL : HL-2.5KFX
1. Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the HL-2.5KFX. This compact and lightweight
desktop HF linear power amplifier has a maximum input power of 2.9 kW. Our
solid-state broadband power amp technology makes it the smallest and lightest
in the industry.
Typical output power is 1.5 kW PEP/SSB with the drive power of 85-90 W. The
built-in band decoder will let you forget about the band setting when the amplifier
is connected to your modern radio through such band data cables as ICOM CI-V,
DC voltage (ICOM, Yaesu), and RS-232C (Kenwood). All the data cables are
included in your amplifier for your convenience.
2. Cautions
2-1
Unpack the amplifier, check the fan guard at the rear panel Fan to see if
there is any damage caused by the physical shock during the transportation. Fan
blades must be free to rotate when powered.
The amplifier is cooled by forced airflow. Several inches of clearance on the top
and the rear wall are necessary to allow for smooth air intake into the fan. Do not
block the air vents on the top cover.
2-2
Keep the amplifier out of direct sunlight, in a cool dry environment.
2-3
Internal high voltages, (AC, DC and RF), are present at all times, ON
AIR or OFF. Internal access should be limited to avoid injury.
2-4
Turn off the AC main power immediately upon any unusual sounds,
sights or odors. Check the multimeter readings of Vd and Id, the fuses and all
cable connections around the amplifier. Please notify the dealer or the factory of
any problems.
2-5
For your safety, do not operate the amplifier without adequate grounding.
A proper ground connection will result in peak performance and stability, in
addition to reduced RF strays or noises.
2-6
To eliminate the RF interference to such home appliances as TV, FM
radio, telephone sets, etc., it is recommended that clamp-on ferrite cores be
1
inserted at both ends of the remote control cable, ALC cable, coaxial jumper
cable, and antenna cables, as needed. Also, a common mode AC line filter (near
the AC outlet), and in-line low pass filters on the antenna coaxial cable, (as
necessary), are recommended.
2-7
The amplifier has fast acting sophisticated protection circuits controlled
by the latest microprocessor technology. Please note, however, any such actions
that cause the same fault to occur repeatedly, will lead to failure of the valuable
final power FET transistors. Also note that the full power CW (or carrier) drive
under the erroneous MANUAL BAND SET leads to the failure of the final power
FET’s (See page 11, Section 7. Connection). In this sense, it is highly
recommended that the amplifier is connected to the radio with supplied Band
Data Cable.
2-8
Before checking inside the amplifier, be sure to wait a few minutes for
the high DC voltage to discharge (monitor Vd meter reading). The internal
potentiometers for RF power detector, protection circuits, FET bias voltage
circuit, etc., are precisely adjusted at the factory, and should not be altered.
Doing so, would require readjustment with precision measuring instruments.
2-9
The primary power transformer is factory pre-wired for AC 240 V
operation. (See page6, Section 5. AC Line Voltage) Be sure to verify your AC
line voltage before you plug the AC power cord into the outlet.
2-10 Before powering on the amplifier, be sure to connect a dummy load (50
ohms, 1.5 kW min.) or a well-adjusted antenna to the output terminal. Operating
without any load will cause extreme stress to the RF power FET’s, although
protection circuits should work under critical conditions.
2-11
Required drive power is slightly less than 100 W to obtain the full 1.5 kW
output. Do not attempt to operate with excessive drive from a high power
transceiver. Transmitting high drive RF (over 100 W) into the amplifier will void
the warranty.
2-12 Keep the aluminum heat sink and air openings free from dust and
blockages. Periodic cleaning will prevent degraded cooling efficiency.
2
2-13
For long continuous operation in RTTY/FM modes, it is recommended
you reduce the RF drive levels by 20% to 30% lower output than CW/SSB
modes.
2-14 To prevent damage to the precision electronic components, avoid
extreme physical shock to the amplifier. If factory service is required, the
amplifier MUST be shipped using the original box and packaging materials.
3. Features
3-1
Our solid-state broadband design engineers worked to make the
HL-2.5KFX, the lightest and most compact 1.5 kW HF amplifier in the industry.
This world-class compact 1.5 kW HF amplifier is the easiest to handle and
operate.
3-2
The amplifier is equipped with a newly developed band decoder. The
amplifier’s decoder changes bands automatically as the data signal is received
from the associated HF transceiver’s frequency bands.
3-3
The amplifier’s main PA section includes 2 high power MOS FET
ARF1500’s by Microsemi, resulting in 1.5 kW PEP (SSB max.). The amplifier’s
broadband characteristics require no further tuning once the operating band is
selected.
3-4
The amplifier allows operation in full break-in CW mode due to the use of
the amplifier’s high- speed antenna relays (made by Panasonic/Matsushita).
3-5
With the unique duct structure design and the powerful blower fan, the
aluminum heat sink block for RF PA module (and other components), are
effectively cooled. The fan’s quiet operation allows for even the weakest DX
signals to be heard.
3-6
The amp utilizes an advanced 16 bit MPU (microprocessor) to run the
various high speed protection circuits such as overdrive, high antenna SWR, DC
overvoltage, band miss-set etc.
3
3-7
This amplifier is compatible with AC 220 V and 240 V (200/230/250 V
included). See the illustration in Section 5. AC Line Voltage for changing primary
wiring of the power transformer.
3-8
For the safety of the operator, an Interlock system is employed. The AC
power is shut down if the top cover is removed, and the automated safety
interlock is activated.
3-9
An analog multimeter allows the operator to monitor Pr (Reflected
power), Vd (Drain voltage of power FET), Id (Drain current) and ALC voltage.
3-10 For future expansion, the amplifier rear panel is equipped with a control
cable connection socket, this is for the upcoming model HC-1.5KAT, auto
antenna tuner by Tokyo Hy-Power Labs. in 2007.

8. Operation
***CAUTION: Under the Manual Band Set operation, always be sure to check if
BAND Switch position matches that of your radio before keying PTT or the CW
paddle. Also when you have changed the BAND, do not make the full power CW
(carrier) drive but reduced level power to see if the BAND is set correctly and the
amplified RF power comes out properly. Full power CW drive under the BAND
Miss-set leads to the failure of the valuable final power FET devices. ***

8-2
How to Operate
8-2-1 Connect AC cord and coax cables as illustrated in Section 7 Connection.
Connect the cable from “SEND” to ACC or the remote terminals of transceiver,
where it is marked “SEND” or “TX GND”. These terminal pins are shorted to
ground when the transceiver is in TX/ON AIR mode. If these connections are not
made, the amplifier will not go into TX (amplification) mode. For a temporary
check to the amp, ground the SEND center pin by inserting an RCA plug whose
center pin has been soldered to the outer case of the plug with a small piece of
wire. As a side note, this SEND terminal shows 12 VDC when open, and draws
35 mA when shorted.
8-2-2 At first, turn the ALC knob full clockwise to avoid ALC voltage to the
transceiver. Application of ALC will be covered in the following Section 9.
8-2-3 Keeping the POWER (AC mains) switch off, check the SWR of your
antenna by keying the transceiver to TX mode (CW or RTTY mode). Monitor the
SWR with an external SWR/Power meter. If SWR is 1.8 or higher at band center,
the antenna has to be adjusted for lower SWR.. As an alternative, an antenna
tuner may be inserted.
8-2-4
While keeping OPER/STBY switch at STBY position, turn the POWER
switch on. Turn ④BAND AUTO-MAN’L switch to AUTO, or MAN’L(manual)
position. If MAN’L is selected, turn BAND-MAN’L switch to desired band. See
page 17, Section10. Band Data Cable Connection, for more details of various
band data cables. Turn the STAND-BY switch to OPER (operate) position and
the amplifier is ready to go. If the POWER switch is turned on, while
OPER/STBY switch is at OPER(operate) position, the orange OPER lamp will
blink, and you will need to reset the OPER switch to enter into operation mode.
“PSE STBY OPERSW is displayed at this time. If you key the transceiver with
the carrier level set relatively low (such as 20-30W), you will achieve an
amplified output signal of a few hundreds watts. Monitor this output with the PF
meter or with an external power meter. Increase drive level to roughly 50W and
see if the antenna SWR stays constant. (As higher RF currents flow some
antennas may show a changed SWR value due to heated connector junctions
and trap coils.)
14
8-2-5 You can now increase the drive level to nearly 80-90W to achieve
maximum carrier output power of 1.4 kW (CW, RTTY) from the amplifier. If you
change to SSB mode, peak voice power will reach approximately 1.5 kW. For
high duty cycle transmissions like RTTY, SSTV, or FM modes, it is
recommended you reduce the drive power by 20-30 % compared with SSB/CW.
8-2-6 With a high power transceiver in SSB mode, you can overdrive the
amplifier resulting in a distorted output signal. This can also occur if you speak
too loud or if you set the microphone gain too high. Speak into the microphone
properly to reduce the possibilities of splattering into the neighborhood. The ALC
is effective in preventing the output signal from being distorted or to limit the
carrier level to within rated output levels. As long as you do not overdrive, you
can disregard the ALC connection. See page 15, Section 9. ALC Connection for
details.
8-7-7 Protection circuits may work during operation depending on the
conditions. If the protection circuit has shut down the amplifier, check the
antenna SWR, Vd, AC line voltage, or try to reduce the drive level. To reset, turn
off the ② OPER/STBY switch once, then back on again. Note that some
protection modes need to reset the ①POWER switch(See page19, Section 11.
Protection & Safety Circuits for more details). The power transformer has an
overheat protection(130℃) in the coil layer. If this temperature switch activates,
the amplifier will put you in receive mode with the cooling fan operating until the
transformer has cooled off. It may take ten to fifteen minutes to cool, depending
upon room temperature. In the same way, there is a built-in thermal switch
(100℃) in the heat sink block of power FET’s.
9. ALC Connection
ALC voltage is available at the terminal marked ALC (RCA phono jack) on the
right upper corner of the rear panel. Negative maximum DC voltage of ten volts
(-10 V) is produced at this terminal when the amplifier is fully driven. This voltage
is adjustable with the ALC ADJ. knob located above the ALC jack. If the ALC
voltage is properly fed back to the transceiver, you can keep the maximum
output power constant or hold the power at a certain level. Also ALC is useful in
avoiding your SSB signal from being distorted when overdriven. You may not
15
always need to connect ALC to the transceiver, if you set the mic gain properly
and do not overdrive the amplifier. Depending upon the manufacturer of the
transceiver, the suitable ALC voltage differs. ICOM may need 0~-4 V, and Yaesu
may need 0~-5 V range.. Kenwood may need -6~-8 V maximum. Check your
transceiver manual.
9-1
Prepare an ALC control cable using the RCA plug supplied in the
package. Solder a single wire or (more preferably) a shielded single wire to the
center pin of RCA plug and solder the shield braid to the outer side of the plug.
Connect the control cable to the “ALC (or EXTERNAL ALC)” jack of the
transceiver. External ALC input is sometimes available at one of the pins of the
“ACC” socket of the transceiver as well.
9-2
At first, turn ALC ADJ. full clockwise. Drive the amplifier in CW/RTTY
mode to full output power. Then turn the ALC ADJ counter-clockwise. Observe
the SWR/Power meter at the output, (or Pf of the multimeter). Stop turning the
ALC ADJ at the point the power starts to decrease. Or if you wish to further
reduce the power, keep turning ALC ADJ until the desired level is achieved. If
you further try to increase the drive power you will now see the output power
become rather saturated, from these adjustments,
(Maximum ALC voltage produced is -10 V when the amplifier output is over 200
W.)

10. Band Data Cable Connection
This section explains about the methods of the auto band setting Collaboration
with the modern transceivers of ICOM, Yaesu and Kenwood.
To make this setting, it is needed that the band data cable is connected to
“CONT” connector as well as selecting “SELECT” for the proper radio
manufacturer.
Turn off AC powers of both the amplifier and the transceiver when you connect
this data cable. Be sure to confirm the auto band set on each band, after you
finish above settings.

11. Protection & Safety Circuits
11-1 Protection Circuits
HL-2.5KFX is equipped with ten protection circuits as shown in the table below.
Protections are commanded by the 16bit microprocessor chip, and DC drain
voltage (120 V) is cut off, when the protection circuit works. Also PROT lamp is lit
and the amplifier becomes “through” state.
If PROT lamp is blinking, you may reset the shut down with OPER/STBY
switch. Reason for the shut down is displayed on LCD panel except for some
cases.

Safety Circuits
In addition to the protection circuits above, there are other safety circuits
(inter-locked circuits) built in the amplifier.
They directly shut down AC power line for the primary of the power transformer,
and if shut down, AC power lamp (green), LCD display and cooling fan will all go
off.
In case this shut down has suddenly occurred during the transmission, stop
transmitting first and wait for several minutes. Pull off AC power plug and check
whether or not AC main fuses are blown.

Thermal Switches Threshold
Heat Sink:
100 ℃
Power Transformer: 130 ℃
These shut-downs will automatically be relieved, when the internal heat cools
off. Be sure to turn off AC power switch, before you leave the operation desk.
Otherwise AC power will be turned on for itself right after the cooling.
