                                    The ALPHA 86 is a self-contained, HF linear power amplifier
capable of continuous operation at a
power output of 1500 watts PEP, keyed CW, SSTV, RTTY, or AM,
with no time limit (rated for continuous
commercial service, "CCS"). Units delivered within the USA
and its territories and possessions are manually
tunable over the frequency range of 1.8 to 22 MHz. They may
be user-modified to extend coverage to 29.7
MHz. Units delivered elsewhere cover 1.8 through 30 MHz.
Performance is optimized for amateur bands.
The ALPHA 86 is capable of high-speed, full break-in CW
(QSK) when used with a suitably-designed
transceiver. Note: the term "transceiver" includes suitable
transmitter-receiver combinations, such as the
Collins S-Line and Drake R4C-T4XC, etc. The ALPHA 86 is
fully compatible with CW, AMTOR, or PACKET
