|Skanti TRP 8255S|
The exciter provides 100 mW, amplified to 200 W (CW, FSK) and 400 W (USB).
The radio is solid state , except the two final valves 4CX350A.
Modes are CW and USB. So HAMs can work still enough bands above 10 MHz.
A crystal oven provides highest frequency stability. Frequences are switched in 1-kHz-steps. A Vernier fine tuning allows tuning the receiver +- 600 Hz.
A turret, driven by a servo motor in each part of the radio set is used to change frequencies. The turret in the linear is driven by signals from the receiver.
A 15 feet rod antenna and a dipole antenna belong to the radio set (see picture gallery).
The only disadvantage is the power consumption: RT-834 needs 10 Ampere, AM-3349 even needs 40 Ampere @ 27V.
