The R&S®VT3050 50 W VHF/UHF power amplifier supports continuous operation across the 30 MHz to 512 MHz band with 50 W transmit power.
The R&S®VT3050 is a member of the R&S®M3TR family of multiband tactical radio systems. This power amplifier supports continuous operation across the 30 MHz to 512 MHz band with 50 W transmit power. The R&S®VT3050 meets the need for military voice and data communications in all analog and digital fixed-frequency and frequency-hopping modes supported by the R&S®MR300xH/U tactical radio. The amplifier is especially designed for high linearity to satisfy the requirements of the R&S®M3TR‘s high-speed radio modem for 72 kbit/s. Furthermore, it supports medium to fast frequency hopping.
Collocation options are available for VHF Low (30 MHz to 88 MHz). The co-site filter is factory-installed. Fully automatic operation (controlled from the host transceiver) and rapid tuning capability make pre-/postselector operation transparent to the user.
A R&S®M3TR VHF/UHF system can be easily upgraded to multiband operation. The R&S®M3TR‘s serial control bus allows combinations of transceivers with up to two external amplifiers. By adding an R&S®VK3150 HF amplifier and an R&S®FK3150 antenna tuning unit, the system can be expanded to a frequency range of 1.5 MHz to 512 MHz.
