Dentron GLA-1000B Amplifier w/ Svetlana EL-509/6KG6 Tubes Rebuilt and ready to go
Have too many amps in the shack. Selling one of my Dentron amps that has been rebuilt.
Included with the amp will be all the conversion files and information.
Amp looks new and is very clean. The
Tuned Input needs to be fine tuned for the EL-509/6KG6 tubes.
The Tuned Input component values were originally chosen for the factory
supplied 6LQ6 tubes. I use the auto
tuner on my Kenwood 850S to tune the input.
If you are using a radio with a tube final you shouldn’t have any
problems. Solid State radios fold
the power back when the SWR is much over 1.5:1.
Again fine tuning the Tuned Input corrects the problem.
Dentron GLA-1000B Amplifier
Converted to the Svetlana EL-509/6KG6 Tubes
New 500 volt Electrolytic Capacitors
Power Supply rebuilt with all new components, diodes, bleeder resistors, etc.
All components replaced with new, resistors, capacitors, etc.
New Midtex T/R relay with 10 amp contacts and 12-volt coil
New Parasitic Suppressors
In-Rush Limiters installed (Amertherm BigAmp Limiters) These have a 15 amp continuous rating. Limits the inrush current to protect the tubes and power supply.
Metal Oxide Varistors (MOV) installed across 110-vac power line
10 ohm 10 watt Glitch resistor installed
Meter protection diodes installed
Zener Diode replaced with a string of 1N40007 diodes to establish the proper resting plate current
Cathode dropping resistors installed to cut tubes off in stand-by or receive conditions
Fan sped up a little by replacing the 380-ohm power resistor with a 300 ohm one.
