MVV 144 VOX Mast Receive Pre Amplifier for 2m
The pre-amps are simply inserted into the coaxial feed line. The power supply is either done over the coaxial cable or via a separate line. Most recent transceivers offer a supply voltage on their coaxial VHF/UHF connectors, so no external Bias-T (DC injector) is required. If required we offer a large selection of DC-injectors with or without sequencer.
Most amplifiers can also be supplied with a separate DC cable. Please note that the cable should be protected with ferrites against high induction voltages. The amplifiers do have a built-in HF vox, which allows automatic and reliable operation at standard power levels.
For higher power levels a separate PTT keying line must be used. Thiscan be done directly from the PTT line of the transceiver, or by means of a separate sequencer. Most important for a pre-amplifier is the adequate gain at a good (high) 3.
Most amplifers have an adjustable gain level, this protects the receiver against overload while sufficiently compensating for cable losses. With the larger models, the transmit/receive switching is done with real coaxial-relays, the'Mini' series by SHF-Elektronik uses print relays. Most amplifiers (except Mini-2) are installed in two enclosures: on the inside a metal case shielding against RF, on the outside a weather proof UV resistant plastic box.
The pre-amp should be located as close to the antenna as possible to keep the cable (and the cable losses) as low as possible. The connecting cable to the antenna should be of high quality.
The 2m/144MHz band is certainly the most used VHF band, regardless if used for tropo DX, EME, meteo scatter or FM. Here a good pre-amp is certainly most useful.
At several occasions contest take place and the band is densely populated with very strong signals. Without a power supply all SHF pre-amps (MVV-xxx models) automatically switch to'pass-through'. This prevents any damages to the amp when the power fails. 0,6 - 0,9.
Power (VOX) 350 (SSB) / 200 (FM) Max. Power with Sequencer 750 (SSB) / 250 (FM). Insertion Loss (TX) 0,3.
