Generate Amplifier for the IFR 1200-series
$99 (includes USPS Priority shipping in the US)
This amplifier is designed to be used with the IFR 500, 1200, 1200A,
1200S and 1200 Super-S service monitors. It is used for generating over-the-air
signals into distant receivers or tuning filters, especially deep notch filters
that require more than the standard generator provides. It plugs into the monitor's
generate output port and power jack and amplifies the generated signal by 32 dB
(decreasing to 28 dB at 1000 MHz), giving an output of approximately +12 dBm
(decreasing to +8 dBm at 1000 MHz).
This amplifier is similar to IFR's “Option 5” 30 dB Generate Amplifier, but does not have the internal relay and receiver port connection of the IFR factory amplifier. It consists of two off-the-shelf microwave “gain block” amplifier ICs having a total gain of about 32 dB at 50-450 MHz and decreasing to about 28 dB at 1000 MHz. The amplifier has an internal 250 mA fuse to protect the service monitor from damage in the event of an internal failure.
Price is $99 which includes USPS Priority Mail shipping in the U.S.
