The Ameco Model TX-62 Transmitter is a compact,
convenient, easy-to- ope rate transmitter for the 6 and 2
meter bands. The TX-62 has 75 watts input on CW and
75 watts peak input on phone. It has a built-in AC power
supply and modulator. All exciter circuits are broadbanded.
Only the final plate and loading capacitors have
to be tuned. A potentiometer-type drive control is used
to set the drive level to the final grid. The final is operated
straight through on both bands.
The TX-62 uses the low distortion Ameco DUO-GRID
modulation. It is NOT controlled c a r r ie r or clamp tube
modulation, but a far superior system with quality that
cannot be distinguished from push-pull plate modulation,
even with an oscilloscope. The percentage of modulation
is controlled by an audio gain control on the front panel.
