NOT FOR SALE IN THE UK
The Enigma Broadcast PA108-300 FM power amplifier is perfect for professional or semi-professional radio stations wishing to increase the power of the their 87.5-108MHz broadcast exciter.
With an output of 320-350W using an input drive of only 1.5W, this compact module has several novel features and excellent specifications. The amplifier can also be driven with lower power 1W exciters at an increased supply voltage of 50V, where typically over 300W will be produced across the band.
Based around the design of our hugely successful amateur radio 300W amplifier modules, we have re-tuned and optimised this design for the 87-5-108Mhz band, resulting in excellent performance. High efficiency exceeding 70% (typically 75%) and super low harmonics (always less than -70dBc) guarantee a clean, cool running amplifier which complies with international broadcast standards.
The amplifier is supplied completely assembled and tested on a heatsink. For a finished product you will need to add an FM exciter, a case, a fan of at least 50cfm, 500W/ 48-50V power supply, coax cable and connectors. You may also add a SWR or temperature protection circuit using the monitor outputs on the board.
