For some operators, sifting through all the technical details to connect one company’s radio to another company’s amp is not an easy feat. Certainly, with the investment in a high-power linear amp and tuner, you’d want to get it right the first time. Elecraft has done the research to help you expand your station’s ability to run higher power.

We've taken the guesswork out of operating by providing cabling and instructions for some of the most popular rigs in shacks today.
