The development of an inexpensive circuited amplifier chain has been investigated. The chain is to be capable of peak power outputs of up to 100 kw at UHF 432 mc with broadband 40 mc capabilities. Flatplate and stripline cavity construction, and new techniques in fabricating inexpensive d-c blocks and bypass capacitors were investigated. Tube types were evaluated for life and performance versus cost tradeoffs. Ease of maintenance coupled with high component and amplifier reliability were major points of consideration. All unique features and technical advances were oriented to be compatible with mass production techniques providing phased-array cavity hardware at minimum cost. Author
