The R&S®VT3050C 50 W VHF/UHF compact power amplifier accommodates an R&S®MR300xU or R&S®MR300xH manpack radio.
The R&S®VT3050C is a member of the R&S®M3TR family of multiband tactical radio systems. The power amplifier supports continuous operation across the 30 MHz to 512 MHz band with 50 W transmit power. The R&S®VT3050C accepts an R&S®MR300xU or R&S®MR300xH manpack radio (not included in the equipment supplied) as a plug-in exciter. Because each R&S®MR300xH/U manpack radio features a rear system connector, the radio can be mounted and dismounted quickly. Connectors at the front panel provide the most important interfaces such as RF, audio, power supply lines, and a digital bus to control external equipment. For standard applications, it is not necessary to plug cables to the radio’s front panel. This provides "jerk and run" capability in an emergency, or convenient handling if the radio is temporarily used as a manpack. The R&S®VT3050C operates on 12 V or 24 V vehicle power supply.
