BEKO HLV-2000 (144-148 MHz) RF Power Amplifier




“Designed for Weak Signal, Tropo Scatter, Meteor Scatter, Digital, & Contest Operation!”

The BEKO HLV-2000 employs advanced German-engineered, solid-state technology to deliver instant on, no compromise performance.

The HLV-2000 is the ideal amplifier for contest, portable, EME & home station operation due to its small foot print and light weight.  BEKO amplifiers are “the best of the best” VHF UHF & SHF high-power linear amplifiers available worldwide!

HLV-2000 Features:

* Instant on, no warmup is needed.  Don’t miss the opening!

* No tuning required

* WSJT / FT8, Digital Mode at rated output

* New, super-fast, accidental-overdrive / spike protection up to 150W

* Built-in IMD indication

* Extremely High efficiency

* VSWR, overdrive and temperature protection

An integrated sequenced voltage to control external mast-mounted preamplifiers is provided. A built in Bias-T allows the preamp voltage to be injected onto the coaxial cable. For those preamplifiers that can’t be powered via the coax and require a separate DC cable, the sequenced voltage is available via a back panel connection.  As with all BEKO Elektronik amplifiers, a front panel switch allows the user to select external preamp on/off function thus allowing the preamplifier to be switched in-line or off-line.  See us for suitable mast-mounted preamplifiers.  The HLV-2000 provides a direct connection to the HPP-144 mast-mounted preamplifier.  Note:  Antenna systems that have a DC short at the feedpoint require an external DC block at the antenna or the separate DC cable from the amplifier to power the preamplifier.
