Post AM Max Received and Testing Started Reply with quote
This morning at 10:30 AM FedEx delivered my ham radio version of the AM Max. I complete the initial tests by 12:00 noon and found most everything as described.

I found that at roughly 14 volts it draws an amp and puts out a cool 3 watts. The heat sink hardly changed temperature despite some pretty long transmit on times. I temporarily drove my Ameritron amplifier on 40 meters to about 75 watts with ease. I will be replacing the power supply and expect to get 150 watts out with little difficulty.

Pictures and descriptions of the testing are at:

AM MAX HAM VERSION

Shoot me an email if you have any questions. Email access is right on the AM MAX page above.

Thanks Marko! As you predicted

Marko,

I have posted the update on my web site and I thought that I would drop by and give you the latest.

The AM Max flys quite well. Here is an audio recording that I made following the modification that you recommended.

AM Max On the Air Recording!

Please stop by my web page for pictures including the work that I have started on getting the Max mounted in a nice 2U rack case. Here's a link: W9MDX.COM AM Max Web Page

I am quite pleased!

Sounds better than I could hope for, Larry.

Good news indeed. The enclosure looks superb as well,
this will look like a pro unit, for sure.

I'll be implementing your suggestions, I greatly appreciate
your help and so do the others.
