Mirage B-2518-G 25W Amp In 160W Out FM/SSB/CW/GFET

Take your VHF operations to the next level with the Mirage B-2518-G 2 Meter Amplifier, the most popular solid-state amplifier on the market. With 160 watts of output power, you can communicate with distant stations and sound better than ever before on FM, digital, SSB, and CW modes.

 

This amplifier features a low noise 20 dB GaAsFET preamplifier with a 1 dB noise figure that pulls out weak signals from almost any 2-meter antenna system. And when operating on the low end of the band, the exclusive Active-Bias™ system ensures crisp and clear SSB voice with no splatter or distortion.

 

The B-2518-G is also fully protected with built-in circuits that automatically bypass the amplifier in case of high SWR or excessive input power. LED indicators alert you of any faulty conditions. And with an internal RF sensing system, the amplifier switches to transmit mode when the power switch is on, while the mode switches and adjustable time delays provide smooth transmit-to-receive switching for every mode.

 

This amplifier also features an extra heavy-duty custom heat sink that spans the entire depth of the chassis for maximum cooling efficiency. And with a rear panel connector, the B-2518-G can be remotely controlled and placed out of the way.

 

 

Compact and easy to use, the Mirage B-2518-G 2 Meter Amplifier is ideal for your 2-meter mobile or base station. Don't settle for weak signals and limited range – upgrade your VHF radio with the B-2518-G and start communicating with confidence.  Michael Brigmond Channel Manager GigaParts MFJ Mirage 4/6/2023
