Yaesu VL-1000 HF/6m 1000W Quadra Linear Amplifier

Yaesu VL-1000 HF/6m 1000W Quadra Linear Amplifier
Description

The Yaesu Quadra System VL-1000 high performance linear amplifier covers 160 to 15 and the 6 meter amateur bands. Combined with its matching VP-1000 power supply unit, the VL-1000 is a compact desktop design utilizing rugged MRF150 MOSFETs in a four-unit, push-pull configuration to provide 1000 watts SSB/CW output (500 watts SSB/CW/FM on 6 meters). (RF drive power is 80W for full output). Automatic bandswitching is provided when used with Yaesu transceivers such as the FT-1000/D/MP, FT-900/920, etc.
