High quality screened (shielded) cable. Length approx 1.5m/4ft 10ins.

This cable enables your Elecraft K3 or K4 radio to control your SPE Expert linear amplifier. The cable assembly has a DB15 male plug which connects to the SSPE Expert's CAT socket. The other end has a DE15 male plug which connects to the transceiver's ACC socket and a DB9 male plug which connects to the CAT socket.

Suits SPE Expert Linear amplifier models 1K-FA, 1.3K-FA, 1.5K-FA, 2K-FA.

The following functions are available with this cable:

  • PTT - The amplifier switches to transmit and back to receive at the same time as the transceiver.
  • ALC - Automatically backs off the transmitter's output power when the amplifier is driven to full power.
  • Cat - The amplifier is able to determine the exact frequency that the transceiver is tuned to. It then automatically switches to the correct band and if amplifier has an ATU fitted, recalls the appropriate ATU setting from memory.
  • Remote on/off - Switching on the transceiver also switches on the amplifier ready for use. Likewise, switching off the transceiver powers down the amplifier (K3 only).

For a more in-depth description of these functions and instructions on how to set up the amplifier for your transceiver correctly, please consult your amplifier's manual.

This cable uses Cat control. A Band control version is also available. For more information please visit our Cat v Band control information page.
