Description

KPA1500

NEW - fully built HF + 6m 1500w solid state amplifier with built-in ATU and separate power supply

 The KPA1500 was designed with the serious operator in mind. Its no-nonsense front panel shows all important parameters at a glance, with a high-contrast 32-character LCD and fast, bright LED bar graphs.

Band switching is instantaneous, via control inputs or RF sensing. Protection and monitoring circuitry is extensive and foolproof, letting you focus on the job at hand - breaking pileups and overcoming the most difficult operating conditions. And it wouldn't be an Elecraft amp without robust PIN-diode T/R switching. Like our KPA500, the KPA1500 offers fast QSK without a noisy relay.

The amplifier's rugged internal ATU can handle full power with load SWR up to 3:1, while a wider matching range is allowed at lower power, including up to 10:1 in standby mode.

When it's time to make waves, you can rely on the compact, quiet, highly integrated Elecraft KPA1500.

  •  Small RF deck fits on nearly any desktop (~4.5 x 13 x 11.5", HWD); weighs only ~22 pounds
  •  Separate lightweight switching power supply weighs ~15 pounds (standard cable is 6 feet long)
  •  Styling matches our other K-Line products
  •  Built-in wide-range antenna tuner (ATU) with instant recall of per-band/per-segment settings
  •  Dual antenna jacks
  •  Rich I/O complement including Ethernet
  •  Interfaces to nearly any transceiver; fully integrated with K3 and K3S
  •  Extensive parametric monitoring ensures safe operation
  •  Silent PIN-diode T/R switching (no QSK relays)
