Well explain it quickly mister "the kid"I Sir...
The back of the amplifier picture shows Two coax connection ports( Radio and Antenna) , Red and Black power wires, and what appears to be a 4 pin microphone connector style socket....
the control head is a remote control switch box , amplifier power on/off, and recieve amp on/off (maybe)
Without the switch box you can use a standard 4 pin mic. connector and add the switch for power on/off... shouldn't be a big deal....
My Concern is that you may have a blown amp!
Good News!!! When repaired by a qualified technician such a myself New Output Device installation will require a
Performance Tuning Upgrade at the same time!
SO FOR A SIMPLE 35.00 FLAT RATE FEE, PROPER CIRCUIT MATCHING, NEW DEVICES PROPERLY INSTALLED, AND YOUR AMP PERFORMING BETTER THAN NEW!
SUCH A DEAL!!! :cheers:

I bought a Dartz RF-100 yesterday at a Hamfest.
It came with the remote head and all of the cables.
Is the RF-100 really as broadbanded as the label (1.8 - 50MHz) says?
I have a switched filter to keep it Ham-legal.
Questions:
If I drive it with 1 watt (SSB or digital mode) will I get at least 10 watts out of the RF-100 - or does the Dartz need more drive?
Thanks!

Hello kd4e-edoc,
Welcome to the forum. That amp has made it's way around that auction site several times, at least you got it with the remote (a mere on/off switch). It says it's broad banded but really it's not, there is no adjustment to tune it for frequency. It was a CB frequency amplifier, should be fine for 10m band, it is broad enough for that. It is two transistor, not a clue what' they are, brand new it was suppose to make 75 to 100 watts driving it with 4 watts, no SSB delay so you would have to add a cap on the relay unless over the years someone has already done it. There are a couple still out there somewhere, also a RF-50 and RF-75 model.
As a new member could you post an intro in the "Welcome to the Forum" topic, viewforum.php?f=89" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; , so others can say "hi" , thanks.
