What Are Linear Amplifiers?
A linear amplifier is an electronic circuit whereby the output is proportional to the input. However, it can deliver more power to the load.
This specific type of amplifier is often a radio frequency power amp where the output is measured in kilowatts and is often used in amateur radio. The amp's nature means it can produce a signal that is an exact replica of its input and is less prone to sound distortion.
In amateur radio, commercial 1-2 kilowatt linear amps use vacuum tubes and can provide a massive 10-20 times more radio frequency power amplification. Meaning that, should you have a transmitter with an input of 100 watts, a linear amp can increase this to 2 kW output. That's a massive increase for those desiring more power!
What Is the Purpose of a Linear Amplifier?
As with any amplifier, a linear amplifier is designed to boost your signal. Yet, a linear amp will do this by increasing the power to the load. However, the output is proportional to the input, meaning the input signal is fixed.
Do I Need a Linear Amplifier?
If you want a power boost to your signal, then a linear amplifier could be your answer. This is especially true if you want to increase your output power from a transceiver to increase it to the total legal limit.
