870 MHz Bidirectional CATV Distribution Amplifier

The CA-30/870AR distribution amplifier is a high quality push-pull amplifier that produces signals with extremely low distortion and harmonic content. The forward bandwidth makes 135-channel operation possible, while the 2-way configuration allows the amplifier to be used in systems that utilize remote signal sources on the return path.
