The Model PAL-500, Power Amplifier, Linear, is a
conservatively rated general purpose amplifier which
provides 500 watts PEP output over the frequency range of 2
to 32 megacycles.

1-2 PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION

The Model PAL-500 is composed of two small and compact
units; the Linear Power Amplifier, Model RFE-1 (5!4 inch
panel) and the Power Supply, Model PSP-500 (8¾ inch panel).
The entire unit occupies only 14 inches of panel space for
standard rack mounting which makes it ideal for console,
table top, mobile, and shipboard installations.

1-3 FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

The combination of the TMC Model SBE, Mode Selector,
Transmitting, and the PAL-500 provides a compact
transmitting system capable of producing,
single, double or independent sideband signals with any
degree of carrier insertion.

The PAL-500 has been carefully designed with no compromise
in workmanship or component quality. A pair of 4CX350A Beam
Power Amplifier tubes in parallel with a pi network provide
unbalanced output from 50 to better than 600 ohms.
Particular attention has been given to the suppression of
distortion products, amplifier stability, power supply hum
content and dynamic impedance. Full interlock, overload and
fuse protection have been provided for the safety of the
operating personnel and protection of the equipment. A
filtered forced air blower system is included as an integral
part of the equipment. An effective ALDC (Automatic Load and
Drive Control) system has been included to limit the
distortion produced when high drive peaks occur.
