The ACOM2000A is a complete and self-contained linear amplifier that covers all amateur bands from 1.8 through 30MHz, has automatic self-tune capability, and provides up to 1500W output power with less than 60W exciter drive.
The amplifier can tolerate loads up to 3:1 VSWR (2:1 on 160 meters) and the process of matching the antenna impedance to the optimum load of the tubes is automated. It features a Remote Control Unit (RCU), contains nonvolatile memory for settings on up to ten different antennas per frequency segment, and offers command capability for use with an external automatic antenna selector and/or automatic antenna tuner.
Transmit / receive switching is capable of full break-in operation (QSK) via an internal vacuum relay.
All indicators and controls (except the primary mains switch and indicator) are available via the Remote Control Unit - RCU. All command input to the RCU is menu-driven.
