AR-20 (KT and KT-DUAL)

20 Watts PEP, Tx/Rx Booster Amplifier with LNA, 30 – 512 MHz,

The Model AR-20 is a portable, lightweight, fully automatic band-switching RF booster amplifier for use with multi-band VHF / UHF Tactical Radio equipment employing legacy, proprietary and networking waveforms. The AR-20 produces 20 Watts from a 1 to 2 Watt PEP radio input and covers the frequency band of 30 – 512 MHz.  The unit has a wide range of input DC voltage allowing operation from a single battery (XX90 battery) or 12 and 28 VDC vehicle power sources.

It also includes Over Temperature Protection, RF sensing, T/R Switching, Automatic Level Control (ALC), Harmonic Filters, Co-Site filters and protection against antenna mismatch.  The AR-20 also has a built-in internal LNA that can be switched on or off by the front panel switch to improve SATCOM receive performance.  The amplifier is comprised of a rugged 4-piece aluminium case.  Optional interface coaxial cables, DC battery cables, and kits for man-packing the amplifier are available.
