Easy Operation
The plateload True Resistance Indicator (TRI) is an ACOM innovation that provides quick and precise tuning, typically in less than 10 seconds. The auto operate function will return the amplifier to the OPERATE mode automatically after each protection trip, saving time and avoiding manual switching.

No Tuner Needed
No external antenna tuner is required as long as the antenna VSWR is 3:1 or lower. The amplifier will perform the functions of an antenna tuner, enabling you to change antennas faster and use them over wide frequency ranges.

User Friendly Amplifier
ACOM 1010 is both user-friendly and self-monitoring. It is designed to safely withstand up to 240 W of reflected power, up to 100 milliseconds of drive spikes (RF “tails” after a PTT or KEY release), and even operator tuning errors. It is also capable of operating at more than a half its designed output PEP power at only 75% of nominal line (mains) voltage. Since ACOM 1010 it can tolerate deep voltage drops (down to zero for 10 milliseconds) and 15% line voltage spikes, it is particularly suited for use in portable environments, such as field days and DXpeditions.

LED Bargraph Display
The upper LED bargraph display always reads peak forward power while the lower LED bargraph reads the reflected power. LED warning indicators are provided for abnormal conditions of grid 1, grid 2, and plate parameters.

Antenna Selection
Two antenna outputs are selectable on the front panel of the amplifier.

Efficient Tuning
Antenna matching can be achieved in less than 10 seconds and at a quarter of nominal output power, which produces lower risk of interference to other stations and greater safety to the amplifier components.

Transceiver Independent Amplifier
ACOM 1010 amplifier operates without special signals/information from the transceiver. It needs only “ground on TX” and 60 W RF drive power to operate at the full output power.

Input Matching
Broadband input matching circuitry offers excellent loading characteristics for the driving transceiver from 1.8 MHz to 30 MHz.

Single Tube Amplifier
A single Svetlana 4CX800A (GU74B) high-performance ceramic-metal tetrode with plate dissipation of 800 W (forced air cooling, grid-driven) is used for maximum efficiency.

Tube Protection

Permanent monitoring and protection of plate and grid voltages and currents, as well as of the exhaust temperature.

High Voltage Protection
Design of the high-voltage power supply eliminates the danger of turn-on transients affecting sensitive devices connected to the same line (mains) circuit. Moreover, the amplifier can be configured to accommodate any of 8 nominal line voltages between 100 and 240 V, 50 or 60 Hz.



Frequency Coverage: All amateur bands in the 1.8-29.7 MHz frequency range. Extensions and/or changes are available on request.

Primary Power: 85-132 V/170-264 VAC (100, 110, 120, 200, 210, 220, 230 & 240 V nominal taps), 50-60 Hz, single phase, 1200 VA. The amplifier is supplied wired for 240 VAC.

Complies with CE safety and electromagnetic compatibility requirements as well as Industry Canada regulations.

Size & Weight (Operating): WxDxH: 41 cm wide x 31.5 cm deep x 15 cm high with Operating Weight of 18 kg.

Operating Environment:
   - temperature range: 0...+50 degrees Celsius;
   - humidity: up to 95% @ +35 degrees Celsius.
   - height: up to 3000 m above sea level without output deterioration.

Antenna matching can be achieved in less than 10 seconds and at a quarter of nominal output power, which produces lower risk of interference to other stations and greater safety to the amplifier components.


All ACOM Amplifiers come with a two (2) year factory warranty.

If your ACOM product fails within the first 120 days, ACOM will prepay shipping to their warranty service center. Shipping will also be prepaid back from the repair center. This is an exclusive warranty for Augustica Technologies customers only and is the best warranty in the industry.

After 120 days and up to the end of the two (2) year warranty period, ACOM will require a payment by the customer for shipping to their repair facility. Shipping will then be prepaid by ACOM for the return of the serviced amplifier. ACOM will repair or replace your unit at any time during the two (2) year warranty period.

Warranty Coverage for the tube or tubes in all ACOM amplifiers is one (1) year.
