  • Modulation

    MT4 is accomplished by true FM transmitting. A variable gain cell amplifier is used for low distortion audio without clipping (less than 2%). Compression begins at 4.8 KHz and hard limiting will occur at a level of 5 KHz (factory set values). In hard limiting the modulation is held constant for input levels of greater than 30 DB. Unlike most transmitters today the MT4 uses a MOS FET for the final transistor. The MOS FET has a much lower noise floor (typically 3 times lower) and is not subject to thermal runaway as bi-polar are. The MOS FET used in the MT4 is capable of withstanding up to a 30:1VSWR. When configured for high power operation the MT4 is supplied with a multiple section low pass filter to suppress harmonics.

  • Power Supply

    Voltages are decoupled in all stages to prevent noise pickup using ferrite beads for high frequency and capacitors for low frequency rejection. The circuit board also has copper ground planes on the top and bottom with multiple feed through points for excellent R.F. grounding.

  • MT 4

    Comes mounted in an R.F. tight enclosure with feed through capacitors for both audio and power supply lines. The R.F. out is supplied to an SO239 connector for VHF and TYPE N standard on UHF. All units are factory tested and burned in to your specified frequency before shipment. Their 1-year warranty is our statement of commitment to quality.
