Will this 10 meter amp work on 11 meters, this one FCC approved.
if it is truly fcc approved for 10m use then no it wont work on 11m
Well , thats not correct at all, but,.......... this particular amp is NOT FCC "approved".
the mere fact that RM uses the term "approved" shows it to be BS.
the correct term is "type accepted", and this splatter box is NOT type accepted.
the number RM is using is just their ID number, it is not an FCC issued number
It is not FCC approved. RM is falsifying the info to sell the amp and couple others.
> (1) The external radio frequency power amplifier shall not be capable of
amplification in the frequency band 26-28 MHz.
> (2) The amplifier shall not be capable of easy modification to permit its
use as an amplifier in the frequency band 26-28 MHz.
The correct term hasn't been "type accepted" for several years. It's been replaced in the buzz word list by "certificated". (Not "certified" either - certificated.)
And Camaro is spot on.
Here is the mod, hope it helps
Good deal. At least now we know it's modifiable! I know there are at least one or 2 places selling these in the US. If I didn't already have too many amps, I'd consider one of these to use with my uniden 980. Again, great work and info Simon and all the others that helped!!
Your welcome, sorry it took time to reply but I had lost my password for here. But better late than never, add the jumper and it deletes the 10m only setting and seems to be fine from 24-30MHz but not confirmed so low, just till 26000mhz so far here
I have one. Works great.
What type of watts are you seeing from this? For $100 I'm interested..
I'm using it with my McKinley. I just adjusted the DK until I saw 80 ish PEP on AM. Doing 110-120 on SSB. Haven't pushed it any further than than. Fan is fairly quiet and keeps it cool. I get windy on both modes talking locally. It chugs along nicely.
Actually type certified is quite common. The jets that are grounded at this time were type certified. It does not mean it is as good as the unit that they certified and then went for the type certification. The RM Italy amps are not splatter boxes unless you are talking about the KL-200 or the KL-300 both of which are Class "C" amplifiers.
The rest of the RM Italy amps are as good as any out there.
If you put garbage in you Get louder GARBAGE out. Trash radios are the offenders.
You can build good equipment but put in the hands of a bad operator it will sound like junk.
What is your RMS power on AM with the amp on? Like 40 or so??
I ask because my meter doesn't do PEP..
Also did you mod it like noted here for 11m? And was it just a simple solder like Simon said??
