630M MOPA at Dayton

The 630M MOPA (89/802/811) was displayed at the Dayton Hamvention as part of the homebrew theme this year.  Plenty of questions were asked and photos taken like the one below!


630M MOPA 809 + 811

630M MOPA (Master Oscillator – Power Amplifier) consists of an 809 “High-C” Hartley capacitively coupled to a push-pull power amplifier, either running 809s or 811s.

Power output is on the order of 100-165W with 1600V on the amplifier tube plates.  CW note is clean and stable (slight chirp reported over the air).
