Question...

  Working very hard to Extra Class.
Soon.   But getting ahead here a bit.

  Hope this is not a dumb question.
But if you dont ask.  You wont know.

  Can this Model Tokyo Hy-Power HL-1KFX
Amplifer work with the Model Icom 746
Radio??  

  What is consider'ed the basic drive
power in watts?  To get the basic
output from this type of AMP?  Or is
based on whether you use CW or SSB etc?

  What may be considered the basic percentage
for this type of amplifer also?  70-80%!

  What type of SWR maybe expected on using
this type of high power?

  When using a Non-Icom Linear Amplifier.
Is there other things to be considered?

  Such as special connecting cable's or
voltage between Radio and the Amplifier?

  Hope somone would enlightned me on this
and some general information etc.

  Thanks...
  73 de,
  Dwight  KC0OHP...

Hello Dwight,
The Tokyo Hy-Power HL-1Kfx amplifier comes set up for Icom rigs, but is totally adjustable with a potentiometer on the rear for other rigs.

To Interface the amplifier with Icom rig requires two standard RC audio cables--one for ALC and the other for transmit and receive.

I'am driving the Amp with about 50 watts and getting about 350 watts out. The amp also includes protection against over-drive, over heat, high drain voltage, and faulty band setting.

A good antenna tuner is required if you have a high SWR(above1.5). I currently using a LDG AT-1000 to handle any mismatches--and this makes a nice combination.

You may want to read the reviews--most folks really like this amp.

73, Wayne
