Yaesu FL-2100B linear HF amplifier 1200W PEP 572b
Yaesu FL-2100B HF Linear amplifier. 1200W PEP from 100W drive.Comes with the original manual. Tested on all bands into a dummy load, minimum 400W RMS key down (translates to about 800W PEP). At the UK legal limit, it's loafing along and not stressed at all. This item is only for experienced radio hams and those with high voltage experience. Meters work fine, HV is above 2100V. Photo 1 shows the amplifier powered up (connected to a 50ohm load). The plate and load controls are smooth, the band select is firm and positive. I've been asked by many people about its condition inside and the age of the output valves. Photo 7 shows an overall view of the circuit with the lid removed.
Photo 8 shows a better view of the plate choke. Photo 9 shows a close-up of some of the HV doorknob capacitors which look intact. Photo10 shows a close-up of the 572b valve, with "1409" written on one of the insulators, inside the valve, so added during manufacture. Looks like a date code to me, 14th week of 2009. Of course if you put you easy against the transformer you will hear a gentle humming.Fans are audible but quiet. For someone experienced with the workings of these will not be fazed by this. Only for experienced radio hams or electronics engineers. There are dangerous voltages inside this item. Collection from KT17 3LB please, an item like this isn't suited to be couriered, as it is very likely to get damaged, plus no one will insure it as it has glass valves. If you're really not able to collect, send me a message with your location and I see if I can deliver it myself when I'm free. Social distancing to be observed and face mask to be used please. Did I say this is for experienced radio hams only? I'm happy to answer questions, please give me plenty of time to respond, don't leave it till the last minute.
