CTE Galaxi 1000 CB HF Linear Amplifier
CTE Galaxi 1000 CB HF Linear Amplifier. Do not confuse with the smaller CTE Jumbo Aristocrat amplifier, which has just 3 valves - this is the biggest 5 x EL-519 amp from the 1980's. Just completed extensive restoration including.
Replacement HT Caps (double original capacity) - Reconditioned RX/TX relay - Improved HT choke support - New mains cable with clamp (internal fuse) - Secure Earth bonding - 5 x Replacement Valves - 2 x new SO-239 connectors - Teflon insulator added to lid internal - Fully cleaned and case resprayed - Retuned input circuit (for low input SWR). Pictured delivering 700W CW/FM into a 1kW Bird dummy load via Daiwa meter (not included in sale), which would probably equate to 1kW PEP SSB.This is an RF sensing amplifier designed for 1-10W input (CW/FM) or 10-22W input (SSB), with good SSB sense and delay. I've no idea what the A. Gain control is for or why it has one. It seems to do nothing. If you know, please let me know! UPDATE: I've been informed it is for the gain of the receive preamplifier thanks Earl. I haven't tested that - will try on the weekend. This is a cash (or bank transfer) on collection item only. This amplifier has lethal voltages inside. Do not open the case whilst plugged in, or within 5 minutes of being plugged in!
