PALSTAR ACCESSORIES

No HAM station is complete without the proper test equipment.  Dummy loads are an essential piece of test equipment, needed to ensure your radio is properly transmitting, watt meters will tell you how much power your rig is putting out.

DL-1500 DUMMY LOAD

Handles up to 1500 Watts

$174.95

The Palstar DL1500 dummy load for amateur radio is capable of handling 100 Watts "barefoot" power levels for 10 minutes, and 1500 Watts for up to 10 seconds. A custom designed Hyperbolic cone permits the the DL1500 to operate at up to 500 MHz (although there is some loss in power handling capability above 30 MHz).

The DL1500 is air-cooled, so there is no messy transformer oil to deal with. The DL1500 is an ideal simple, basic dummy load for the ham who does not need the capabilities of our much larger Palstar DL2K and DL5K dummy loads.

DL2K DUMMY LOAD

2000 Watts for 1 Minute

$375.00

The Palstar DL2K 2000 Watt dummy load was born out of the need for a dummy load that allows for more time to tune your amp. Most dummy loads don't have the real world power capability needed by Ham operators who use a high-power amplifier. Palstar's solution: the DL2K that can handle 2000W for 1 minute, or 400W continuously. The DL2K has thermostatically controlled fan cooling, so the fan only runs when needed, or it can be switched on to run continuously.

DL2.5HP DUMMY LOAD

2500 Watt Wattmeter

$764.00

The Palstar DL2.5HP was born out of the need for a dummy load that allows for more time to tune your amp at high power. Most dummy loads don't have the real world power load capability needed by Ham operators who run high-power amplifiers.

The Next-Generation Palstar DL2.5HP Dummy Load for amateur radio rated at 1 to 60 MHz can handle up to 2500 watts for up to 1 minute, and up to 600 watts for 100% duty cycle. The DL2.5HP has thermostatically-controlled dual fan cooling, so the fans only run when needed.

PM2000A WATTMETER

Forward power up to 2000 Watts

$188.00

The Palstar PM2000A wattmeter measures and displays forward power up to 2000 Watts, reflected power, and SWR simultaneously on its dual movement meter system in the frequency range of 1.8 MHz to 60 MHz. Accuracy of the readings is assured because the PM2000A features a true shielded directional coupler.

PM2000AM WATTMETER

Mobile version of the PM2000A Wattmeter

$188.00

The PM2000AM is the mobile version of our popular PM2000A Wattmeter, featuring a remote coupler that can be mounted up to 14 feet from the display head.

WHAT'S NEW?

For over 50 years, Micom has been the industry leading commercial HF Single Sideband radio. Led by Mr. David Carothers, Royal Communications International, Inc. have loyally serviced and supported Micom customers for over 30 years. As such, it is with great sorrow which we relay the factories’ announcement that the Micom line has reached its end of life. Production will end 30 September 2020.  After this date we will no longer be able to accept orders for Micom products.

Accordingly, we request you place a "Last Time Buy" order prior to the end of September 2020. Although the Micom transceivers will be unavailable after that time, we will continue to supply compatible HF antenna tuners, antennas and various other Micom accessories as listed on our website.

Royal Communications International, Inc. will continue to provide support and repair services for the Micom 3 series radios for the duration of remaining warranty. Repairs for Micom transceivers that are no longer covered under warranty will be available as long as commercially viable. With regard to Micom-2 series transceivers, unfortunately, we are unable to continue providing repair services, due to a lack of available spares and parts.

While this message may have initiated on a somber note, we are pleased to announce our new partnership with Barrett Communication USA Corp. The Barrett 4000 series transceivers are inter-operable with Micom transceivers, certified by JITC to MIL-STD-181-141B and are NTIA compliant.  The Barrett 4000 series transceivers include key differentiators from the Micom and competing transceivers in the market. Namely, built in IP networking, color touchscreen display, removable/remote-ready control head, USB port for easy upgrades and programming, and several other advanced features. Barrett Communications Pty Ltd., was founded in Australia, and through growth and acquisition have had a presence in the United States for 40 years. 

Additionally, we are excited to announce the 4000 series radios are now manufactured in the United States, specifically to meet the demanding requirements of our federal, state and commercial customers. The user-friendly Barrett 4000 series radios boast a (6) six week or shorter lead time, this combined with Royal’s class leading technical and sales support, full-service capabilities and a USA factory, you can be assured of fast and reliable support.  

We apologize for any inconvenience this situation may have caused. We are optimistic that the transition from Micom to Barrett will be smooth and we hope to make the transition with you, our valued customer.  You can still expect the same fast, personalized, reliable service and technical support that you have become accustomed to with Royal Communications.   

LAST EVENT

During the summer June-July 2017, pilot Brian Lloyd commenced his round-the-world flight to commemorate Amelia Earhart’s route eighty years ago in 1937. The two month flight followed Earhart’s historic equatorial route. Royal Communications International, Inc. was honored to support Brian throughout his expedition.

 

“I chose the Micom3T transceiver for my historic recreation of Amelia Earhart's flight due to its robust construction and outstanding reputation for reliability in a harsh environment. While the control head is mounted in the cabin and lives in a more benign environment, the receiver/transmitter unit resides in an unheated and unpressurized avionics bay where the temperature may vary from +45C to -20C and the altitude may top 24,000 feet. In spite of this harsh environment the Micom3T performed well. 

 

But even the best equipment can fail and I did experience an intermittent failure of the receiver/transmitter unit. A single call to Royal Communications had a replacement unit on its way to me on the other side of the world in a day. Clearly the emphasis was to get my communications back up and running reliably as quickly as possible. I am extremely pleased with the level of support I received. The replacement unit operated and continues to operate reliably.

 

I recommend Royal Communications and Micom products without any reservation. They provide excellent service, great support, and reliable products. Thanks Royal!” - Brian Lloyd
