Legacy VHF Broadband RF Signal Boosters

  • 60 Series - 1-Way, VHF Signal Boosters
  • 61 Series - 2-Way, VHF Signal Boosters

Since the 1970's the signal booster has grown to accommodate most public safety and commercial applications in the 132-174 MHz range. Taking a modular approach, configured systems are easily accommodated by the proper selection of standard amplifier and filter blocks to meet the requirement.

Output Level Control (OLC) effectively reduces the gain when input signal levels become too great. This standard feature insures that the signal booster remains linear and therefore maintains its certified output characteristics. Unique filter solutions enable use of these signal boosters in harsh RF environments.

Most VHF Bi-Directional Amplifiers are custom designed to handle specific frequency plans, please contact the factory for assistance.
