It features a robust Svetlana 4CX800A (GU74B) ceramic-metal tetrode, ensuring reliable and efficient operation. Unique to this model is the Plate-load True Resistance Indicator (TRI), an ACOM innovation that significantly speeds up the tuning process to less than 10 seconds, enhancing usability.

This amplifier is equipped with an auto-operate function that seamlessly returns the device to its operating mode following any protective trips, minimizing downtime and manual intervention. It efficiently handles antennas with a VSWR up to 3:1 without needing an external antenna tuner, facilitating quick antenna changes and broad frequency usage.Acom 1010 - 700W 160-10 m Linear Amplifier
Acom 1010 - 700W 160-10 m Linear AmplifierDesigned to endure harsh conditions, the Acom 1010 can withstand up to 240 W of reflected power, brief drive spikes, and operator tuning errors. It is also adept at functioning in unstable voltage conditions, making it ideal for portable use on field days and DXpeditions.
The amplifier includes dual antenna outputs, easy-to-read LED bar graphs for forward and reflected power and LED warnings for various abnormal operating conditions. Its broadband input matching circuitry ensures excellent loading characteristics for the driving transceiver, and the high-voltage power supply is designed to prevent turn-on transients, safeguarding connected devices.Acom 1010 - 700W 160-10 m Linear Amplifier


With the capability to operate at full power with just a 60 W RF drive from the transceiver and no special signalling required, the Acom 1010 stands out as a versatile and user-friendly option for serious amateur radio enthusiasts.

Complies with CE safety and electromagnetic compatibility requirements.
