HYS TC-150V Miniature Electronic Radio signal amplifier for the VHF radio band. Small and compact , the unit is self operating, sensing RF and activating the internal relay to amplifiy your handheld's radio signal up to 40 - 50 times the input. Tested and here's what we found using a Boafeng portable UV5R with 1.2 watts (LOW POWER) to the amplifier:
168 Mhz = 47 Watts
165 Mhz = 52 Watts
160 Mhz = 40 Watts
152 Mhz = 44 Watts
146 Mhz = 45 Watts
The amplifier is labeled from 150 to 160 Mhz and it does operate very well above and below that said band up to 10Mhz wideband.. so it does 2 meters and also the 152+ Mhz bands.. great little unit.
Using this on 2 meters with a small handheld will provide you 40+ Watts or more , perfect for hitting to repeaters far away.
The unit is extremely small and compact < 5 X 5 X 1/1/2" > < 12 cm X 12 cm x 4 cm> with heat sink all around it.
It requires a good 13.8 VDC source with at least 10 Amps to get that power out. Only 1 to 4 w max input is required to get full output.
More power input than advertised, can lead to malfunction and possibly the destruction of the RF Final output Transistor, so use LOW power ALLWAYS..
Brand New in the box , we have them in stock , ready to ship anywhere in Canada.
