TX-5200 Solid-State Bi-Linear Amplifier
RF OUTPUT POWER
Refer to Chart
Transmitting: 13.8vdc at 29 amps. Standby: 13.8 VDC at 48 milliamps. With receive pre-amp on 132 milliamps.
Stable solid-state circuitry provides a minimum transmitted power gain of 33 times. No tuning required. Will work on any signal of 1 watt or more. Automatic switching, using RF power from your transceiver no internal connections are required to your existing equipment. Long-life solid-state light emitting diodes. FET-transistor pre-selector provides an approximate gain of 6 decibels on receiving signal.

Connect the amplifier to 12-volt battery using No. 10 wire or larger. OBSERVE POLARITY. Positive to red marked wire and negative to black wire (GROUND). Connect both positive and negative leads directly to the battery. Failing to do so may result in a distortion of the transmitted signal and a loss in power output. Make sure all connections are tight or soldered if possible. The majority of all problems experienced are due to improper Installation techniques.
REVERSING POLARITY MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE AMPLIFIER.
Install the amplifier where adequate air flow Is available to cool it. This amplifier was designed and optimized to operate with 3-4 watts AM drive. Do not use more than 4 watts drive as this will shorten the RF transistors life and severely distort the quality of the transmitted signal.
