The Spitfire transmitter is ready built and ready to run...at an affordable price...with the performance and features of units costing many times the price...!

The Spitfire employs a crystal controlled frequency synthesizer for accurate tuning and drift free frequency stability. The synthesizer tunes the entire AM broadcast band (500 - 1800 kHz) and the 160M Amateur Band. And provides the full 100 mill-watts, as allowed for FCC Part 15 operation without a license.

The Spitfire employs an updated RF output and modulator stages with new features that results in very low distortion modulation right up 100%, and an almost indestructible output stage. And the ATU (Antenna Tuning Unit) has an variable capacitor to peak the network to match a 3 Metre Antenna as specified under Part 15 rules.

The Spitfire also has a two channel mixer for either Stereo to Mono or twin channel Mono audio sources.

The Spitfire printed circuit board uses a grounding technique that splits the RF and Audio grounds, as well as providing and external grounding point. In addition a new external "universal"power supply provides regulated DC power to the transmitter, supplied with county specific power leads for the USA.
