Mirage B810

If you are looking for more power and receive
sensitivity for your two meter FM or
multimode rig, the Mirage B108 two-meter
SSB/FM amplifier and preamp might be your
answer.

As it's name implies, 10 watts in gives you 80
watts out. Plenty of power for DX or for
hitting that distant repeater. It runs off a 12-
volt power supply (10 to 12 amps) that you
would need to already own or purchase. (I
will include the power cable, however.)

The amp is in good operational and cosmetic
condition. (See the photo.) It easily meets the
specified power output on FM and SSB.
Switching the preamp on makes a significant
difference with reception from weaker
stations. About the only issue that I've
encountered is the the RF sensing relay
chatters in SSB mode when I talk. (This does
not occur in FM mode.) Despite the relay
chatter no one has indicated any issue with
my SSB audio.

I used this amp regularly to boost the power
out from my Kenwood TS-711A all mode
two-meter rig both on USB and FM. The TS-
711A has recently been sold, so I have no
further need of the Mirage B810. Now it can
be yours for $90 firm plus shipping. (PayPal
or check both accepted with appropriate
bank clearance time.)

73,

Jeff, WB1AAL
