RT 8150 PA replacement

The maintenance support for the original RF power amplifier of the RT8150 has become increasingly difficult due to unavailability of spare parts.

Because large numbers of this model are still in operation around the world, a new 30W PA was designed as a direct replacement. The new PA has a maximum RF output of 30Watts and is derated to 20Watts for continuous operation. It utilizes a thick film PA module with improved VSWR protection. It is approximately 12% more efficient which also assures that it will run somewhat cooler.
