There seems to be a prevailing notion that the AMT5000 has some kind of limitation. This seems to me ridiculous and without merit.
With my transmitter experience, with both models of ssTran transmitters, I have found that it is possible to get a resonant load into an antenna system with a minimum of ground radials, which verifies kc8gpd’s report.
But here is what was overlooked in that report…
While the antenna system with no radials may be resonant, there is no range. All the power is dissipated in the near field.
With proper radials the far field range opens up.
Debunking the AMT5000 is a goofy waste of time. It is probably the most well designed part 15 transmitter on the market.
