AM Broadcast Transmitters

AM   BROADCAST   TRANSMITTERS'

This is a series of Low Power AM Medium-Wave Broadcast Transmitters'

Ready-built and turned to your required frequency or re-tuneable using DIP switches.

AM Transmitter operates between 1024KHz and 1600KHz in the Medium Waveband (AM Band) and is designed to be a reliable and stable unit. The Transmitter circuit design employs a Colpitts FET oscillator in a Phase-locked loop circuit for accuracy and ease of frequency selection. It is also very stable and therefore does not drift off frequency. The Phase Lock circuit provides selection in 1KHz steps, so that the unit can be used in either Europe, which has 9KHz spacing between channels, or in the USA and other parts of the World where 10kHz is used between channels. A rugged Power MOSFET is also used on the RF output stage, which drives the output toroid and variable tuning capacitor.

There are 3 in the range, 1 Watt, 4 Watt and 8 Watt.

3 Models - 20 - 25 Watt Output

3 models. 20 and 25 Watt RF output AM transmitters, one version has 50 ohm output.

where the 50 ohm version requires an ATU at extra cost
Two other models are designed for use with long-wire connected directly. A low-band model (600-1023KHz) and a high-band model (1024-1630KHz)

AM 25 details

This transmitter has been designed to cover the AM Medium Wave band. It is tuneable across the band and to maximise the output power, pre-set tuning components are selectable in circuit.
Features of the AM25:
• Digital IC design
• 28 Volt  3Amp DC powered (UK adapter included)
• 1KHz channel spacing for EU and US operation
• Inherently stable
• Audio input with automatic Modulation circuit (volume) via 2 RCA phono sockets (stereo input)
• Low Distortion Analogue modulator Amplifier.
• SO259 Aerial Socket on rear of unit
• up to 30W RF output (100W peak) into 50 Ohm load
• 1020 to 1638KHz selectable from front panel
• Tuning Meter LED

1w, 4w and 10 Watt AM Pole Transmitters
1W £185 
4W £200

10W £240

This AM Transmitter has been designed for use where there is limited space for a conventional long-wire aerial. It instead uses a telescopic 5 metre vertical pole and so can be retracted when not in use. This makes the transmitter portable in a way.. It operates between 1024KHz and 1620KHz (1740max) in the Medium Waveband (AM Band) and is designed to be a reliable and stable unit. Typical range 0.5 to 2Km radius.

*NEW*   FM Transmitter 100Watt RF Amplifier

£260

100 Watt Amplifier

This RF amplifier is designed to operate on the FM Broadcast Band, 88 to 108MHz.
The amplifier is wideband, and requires up to 5 Watts drive to give full 100 Watts output into your Aerial. This compliments our 7 Watt FM transmitter as the driver.
Less input reduces the output, so therefore with 2.5 Watts drive the output level is 50W.
It can safely be operated at any output level.  The amplifier utilises a Switch Mode Power supply of 24V DC at up to 10 Amps capability.

Operation.
The RF driver unit is used to tune the aerial for minimum SWR at the operating frequency.
This means that when the power amplifier is inserted, it can be rest assured that the match to the aerial is good.  If the match to the aerial. Is poor it could damage the output transistors of this amplifier.
For setup, insert SWR meter between RF Driver unit and aerial. Adjust aerial (length) for minimum loss (SWR reflected power). Now insert the amplifier in-place of the SWR meter, or better still, fit amplifier after the driver and before the SWR meter. That way you can monitor the reflected power from the aerial.
