The 50kW and 100kw series of broadcast antenna matching transformers are suitable for inclusion in systems where 200 ohm or 300 ohm open wire feeds need to be matched to a 50 ohm coaxial feeder. The units are housed in aluminium tanks, silicone oil cooled to minimise losses and a major feature is broad band operation without the use of ferrite material in the transformer design.

  • 50kW average, Type HF500
  • 100kW average, Type HF1000
  • 100 kW Average + 100% AM Mod
  • Broad band 3-22 MHz
  • Very low loss
  • All-weather unprotected operation

These antennas require small size broad band matching networks and CTS offers the HF 1000 range providing 200 or 300 Ohm balanced outputs.
