ROCKWELL COLLINS HF-8014A HF 4ch exciter １００ｍＷ Updated : April 10 2009
The HF-8014A exciter unit can transmit the signal powered by an output of 100mW through four channels concurrently with USB, UUSB, LSB and LLSB.
The HF-8014A can be connected to the power amplifier like the Rockwell Collins HF-8020, HF-8021, HF-8022 or HF-8023.
The HF-8021 (the successor to the 208U-3A amplifier) and HF-8022 (the successor to the 208U-10A amplifier) have configured the affordable amplifier tubes that have
the performance of the lower distortion under the concurrent operation with four channels.
Otherwise, we should develop the control circuit unit for using a different amplifier system.
There were reports that the DDS sub-system of HF-8014A was only for the late version, which had caused the DDS to malfunction so often.
The functional specification of HF-8014A is as follows:
1)The operational frequency range is between 2MHz and 30MHz.
2) The available mode is for operating on USB, UUSB, LSB, LLSB, AM or CW.
3) The quality figure of IMD3 is more than -50dB/ 200mW PEP operating on the single channel.
It should be recommended to attach the low-pass filter for operating of the ham radio communication,because the band width of SSB is a little wide like
150Hz to 3150Hz under 3dB down.
The frequency counter in the photo of right-hand is optional.

The synthesizer is configured by the PLL architecture with lots of PCB. There are many decade boards like 10Hz, 100Hz, 1KHz, 10KHz and 100KHz in the PLL PCBs.
