The HL-700B is the prdessor of the HL-450B in the mobile /base hybrid models. It is 13.8V powered amplifier which makes it ideal for mobile use. The unit incorporates a microprocessor for fault protection.
When driven by the transceiver a 10w input can result in 400w output. When the Hi/Lo switch is set to high th e output can reach a full 600W. There is no need for a separate band data cable, for the amplifier automatically reads the radio’s frequency and selects the proper band. In addition to the automatic band select function, the band
selection can be manually switched via the front panel controls or via an external remote control port on the rear of the unit.
The HL-700B can be keyed with RF or connecting a keying line to the rear jack of the unit. This hard keying circuit guarantees smooth and effortless T/R switching with the radio. Also incorporated,
is an ALC circuit, which will help insure that the finals are always protected from being overdriven. Failure in not connecting the ALC, can result in premature failure of the finals and/or signal distortion.
An efficient ducted rear exhaust fan system is incorporated in the case, for forcing cool air to the heat sink and the internal components of the unit. The fan is noted as being fairly loud by users.
The amplifier incorporates various protection circuits such as high SWR, Over Drive, Over Current, etc. Any fault encountered by the unit, will cause an immediate shut down of the amplifier protecting sensitive components.
There is a front mounted panel meter which displays output power, reverse power and input voltage. Band switches for manual band switching are also on the front panel. The front LED's indicate power on, Tx and Fault indicator.
The rear connections include, DC Power connection terminals, Remote DIN connector with ALC input jack, transmitter input and antenna output coaxial connections, and a second 8 pin DIN socket for connecting External
