AC-1 Antenna Coupler

AC-1

The new Heathkit Antenna Coupler Model AC-1 was specifically designed to operate with the Heathkit Amateur Transmitter and will operate with any transmitter not exceeding 75 watts RF input power. Rugged design has resulted in a sturdy, well shielded unit featuring a copper plated chassis and shield compartment. Coaxial 52 ohm receptacle on the rear of the chassis connects to a three section Pi-type low pass filter with a cut-off frequency of 36 Mc. Tuning network consists of a variable capacitance and tapped inductance in an impedance matching unit. Capacity coupled neon lamp serves as a tuning indicator and will also provide a rough indication of power output.
