600w Mosfet Rf Linear Amplifier with APT5020BN

This is my base station of MosFet Rf Amplifier. The MosFets are APT5020BN ,I have used them in my base station and they produce a good 600w from 36V on 160 and 80,and 400w on 7 Mhz. , I've had 600w out of four at 36V on 160 with a one turn primary / four secondary on the output transformer. (Tubing Transformer).
The circuit is basically the same but this is two devices with combiner on each side of the push-pull. The golden rule is to use a fet capable of withstanding three times your maximum supply voltage.

lets see . . . Schematic.

New power-MosFets coming out every week or so, look for ones with a low Rds-on and high power dissipation. The main drawback is the high gate capacitance, several thousand pF, which makes them hard to drive above 7MHz. Check out IRF , IXYS and APT ( FET manufacturers)

The 60 Watt linear amplifier is simple all solid state circuit using power mosfet IRF840. The IRF series of power transistors are available in various voltage and power ratings.

need more power with low price mosfet and easy to make the linear Rf amplifier is the choice.
