IMPORTANT NOTES:

This amplifier is only intended for installation in a HARDROCK-50 power amplifier to lower the driver requirements. The driver amp covers 1.8 to 54 MHz and is not suitable for use with the RS-UV3 transceiver.

The driver kit, as supplied, does not have sufficient filtering to meet FCC Spurious Emissions requirements. If you intend to use the driver amp as a stand-alone 5-10W amplifier and connect its output to an antenna, additional filtering is required and space for this filtering is on the PCB.

Details for using the Driver Amp for use as a stand-alone 5W or 10W amplifier as well as details for building the appropriate lowpass filters are available on the Driver Amp technical information page:
