For the experiment, a multi-stage high power amplifier with 500 W peak envelope power and 44.
At 25 W peak envelope power, the third-order class AB two-tone intermodular distortion figure is a low -43 dBc.
Each of the assembly's duplexers is configured using transverse electromagnetic-mode cavity filters, thereby enabling the low maximum insertion loss as well as providing high transmit power handling of 100 W CW, 250 W peak envelope power and 500 W peak instantaneous power.
The BJT has an optimum intermodulation performance near its rated power (45 W peak envelope power (PEP)) that worsens as the output power is varied above and below this level.
