Icom IC-PW1 HF+6m 1kW solid-state linear amplifier

The power you need... to succeed!

Wide frequency coverage with 1 KW output*
All HF bands plus 50 MHz are covered. The IC-PW1 provides a stable, clean and low distortion 1 kW from 1.8 MHz to 50 MHz*. In addition, full duty cycle (even during more demanding RTTY or SSTV operation) and full break -in operation are possible. Great for DX'peditions or contest operation.
*Guaranteed within amateur bands only.

Wide ALC adjustable range
Internal circuitry allows the ALC to be adjusted over a wide range. This means that the IC-PW1 can be used with almost any HF, 6 m or HF/6 m rigs - not only Icom rigs*
*Ask GigaParts about usable exciters.

Compact body
Dimensions, including amplifier, power supply, tuner and controller, are only 350(H) x 269(W) x 378(D)mm* And, because the controller is detachable, the IC-PW1 can be installed almost anywhere in your shack.
