The VHF 2M 8 Watt RF Amplifier uses the Mitsubishi RA08H1317M module, and is suitable for many projects including homebrew Transceivers, Transverters, or APRS.  The Kit is suitable for both linear SSB, AM and non linear FM modes, and includes an integrated 5th order Chebychev low pass filter on the board.  For SSB use the module will produce around 4 Watts linear.

Please Note: For most applications using FM, You will require a Heat sink with at rating of at least 2.5 degrees C per watt.  With short APRS transmissions a smaller heat sink can be used, with a realistic output of up to 5 Watts without overheating.

The Product image shows a fully constructed Module board without the optional Mitsubishi module.  Please refer to the Options Tab for the descriptions of the various products available.
