XPR8300 and RF amplifiers

Postby n1gtl » Wed Aug 03, 2016 6:28 pm

I have done some Internet searching on this matter and cannot find a clear answer.

When a MotoTRBO client transmits, it does so switching on and off rapidly (about 30ms on then off). Repeaters on the other hand, being full duplex, are in TX mode 100% of the time. Can a "standard" (Henry) amplifier be used with a Mototrbo repeater? I see sites advertising "digital" or "TDMA" amps. I know the clients are a different animal, having to rapidly switch TX and RX but if a repeater is not doing this switching, shouldn't a standard RF amp work?

You're assumptions are correct. I have one XPR8400 using a Henry amp and it plays just fine.
Lots and lots of watts...
