The 2014 Norbreck Amateur Radio Rally is to see the official public unveiling of their new Gemini 70 linear solid-state amplifier for 432MHz.

The amp joins a range that already consists of a dual-band offering for 6 & 4m and a 2m version. Each amplifier is capable of delivering up to 300w, from inputs ranging from 2.5 – 25w, and includes a built-in 50v power supply.

The compact amplifiers use an all-aluminium chassis.

This will be the first time that the 70cm amplifier will be seen in public, so if you’re interested in some serious VHF/UHF power, get along to the Norbreck Amateur Radio Rally, in Blackpool, on the 6th April – doors open 10:30 (10:15 for visitors with disabilities).

Further details of the range can be found on the Linear Amp UK web site.

New web site competition launched
