 Ameritron AL-80B Amplifier Pictures


I recently purchased an Ameritron AL-80B 1 kW amplifier.  After searching the internet, I realized there are very few good pictures of the “workings” of these amplifiers.  Since many hams, like myself, love to see what’s “inside the box”, I decided to take a few pictures, and post them for others to enjoy. 

The AL-80B uses a single 3-500ZG tube, and provides 800W on CW and 1kW Peak on SSB.  It’s a sweetheart, weighing in at about 48 lbs. 

The full manual is available at

Hope you enjoy the pictures.
