EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE FROM: HRO, ML&S Martin Lynch & Sons, and Palstar
The new LA-1K RF Sensing Dual HF LDMOS 1000 Watt Amplifier. While the LA-1K will work with a wide variety of tuners and transceivers, Palstar custom-design the LA-1K to work as the perfect match for our very popular HF-AUTO autotuner.
MADE IN THE USA
"I received the LA-1K. Commissioning it was simple. Like the HF-AUTOs I have, it just does what it is supposed to do while looking pretty,
particularly as it sits on top of the tuner.|
Thank you for a great job again, Paul, and to your very good people.

LA-1K Firmware Summary:
V1.01C: Reduced transmit sequencing delay from 14ms to 3 ms.
V1.02A: Unkeys amplifier with low +50V (<44V) to protect transistors from damage if supply trips as on 120V > 32A conditions.
V1.02B: Replaced the word "FAULT" with "BYPASS" for SWR Trip, Thermal Trip, and LW 50V Trip. Also, color changed from Red to Green on above (except temp#) when too hot.
