Nice Icom IC-2KL Ham Radio Soild-State HF Linear Amplifier with IC-2KL AC PS IC2KL
This is a very nice, clean ICOM model # IC-2KL Solid-State Ham Radio Linear Amplifier for the HF (160-10 Meters) Amateur Radio bands, and runs 500-Watts output power. It comes with the companion IC-2KLPS AC Power Supply.
According to a tag on the AC power cord, which currently has a 120V AC plug on it, it is setup for 240V AC Input power. This IC-2KL came from a local friend's Estate Sale, and he used it with his ICOM IC-756PROII HF Transceiver, and an ICOM AT-500 Automatic Antenna Tuner. It does have the 10/12-Meter kit installed, and he used it often on local 10-Meter nets.
I haven't done any testing, this Amplifier is right from the previous owner's ham shack where it was in operation. The only thing I noticed is that the metering switch seems somewhat loose, but still seems to work smoothly. This is a 500-watt output amplifier, and if you're using it with an ICOM Transceiver, it can track the band in use and switch the Amplifer and Antenna Tuner (if cabled up together) automatically for the HF bands. I bought it for another IC-2KL, then found out that that amplfier already had the kit installed.
The IC-2KL works with the older Transceivers like the ICOM IC-720, 751, 735, 765 etc. All the way up to the currently-available Transceivers.
I have some friends who are using one of these IC-2KL Amplifiers with their new IC-7610 transceivers. The IC-2KL doesn't show the 10-Meter band on the front-panel bandswitch, so you need to set it to AUTO and let the transceiver select 10-Meters, if you want to use that band.
I do have the brand-new replacement ICOM band switch that allows manual selection of all bands, but it was never installed. A copy of the Instruction Manual is included, and it's available for free download on-line, if you'd like more information about the use and hookup.
I took a picture of the Specifications page, which you can probably zoom in on, to see its capabilities. It's important to read the manual thoroughly before using, as you need to be careful to not overdrive the input, have an open or shorted antenna, change bands while transmitting, etc. I've also had problems with a parts swapper for another amplifier - yes, it really does happen! Please read the manual before using, and make sure the IC-2KLPS AC Power Supply is strapped correctly for your AC input voltage, and is using the right plug!
