RF Amplifiers – How They Deliver Radio to the World

Signals – whether they’re for radio, TV, cell phones or any other application – are really nothing more than electrical currents. The term RF stands for radio frequency… but is applied in a couple of different ways.

In the technical sense, a radio frequency (RF) signifies rate of oscillation, which occurs anywhere from 3kHz to 300 GHz. For transmitting radio signals though, it isn’t as simple as just having an antenna and minimal equipment.

When radio signals originate, they’re generally very weak electrical currents, especially if it’s from some sort of microphone device like walkie-talkie or radio station system. These original signals are often times too weak for transmission over a long distance. Therefore, to transform this weak signal into something powerful to transmit over an antenna, an RF amplifier is used to boost the signal.

The process for transmitting signals for radio or other applications occurs in several stages in fact. In each of the stages, a signal is modified in some way to produce a desired output. Broadcast signals in fact are a collection of different “signals”, each with its own role in the final output. In the case of radio, this can include speech or music.

The RF amplifier essentially boosts each signal equally to produce a clean, linearly amplified signal which is then transferred to a system with much higher power. An RF amplifier in fact takes distortions in a radio signal and distorts them even further. Therefore, a big job of the amplifier is to ensure the signal is given maximum strength with as little distortion as possible.

Linearity, or the ability to amplify all parts of a signal by the same amount (… to ensure all signals are amplified equally), is the core element of an RF amplifier.

Within the amplification process itself, the triode – or a diode with an attached control grid – is the device primarily responsible for signal enhancement. The attached control grid regulates the electric charge flowing through the diode. By applying small voltage variations, the triode can make significant changes in the strength and behavior of the current.

In radio broadcast, information transmitted through radio frequency takes the form of speech or music and is called “modulation.” Amplitude modulation, or AM radio, is the earliest and simplest form of radio frequency modulation. It’s simple in that there’s essentially only one stage where an amplifier only has to vary the power output of an RF stage by varying the input signal.

Frequency modulation (FM) was developed in the 1930s, and while it produces a much cleaner signal, it’s a bit more complicated than AM.

Today, RF amplifiers are used in a variety of areas, including AM/FM radio, TV, radio towers, walkie-talkies and even in every cell phone and cell phone tower.

It’s safe to say that an RF amplifier constitutes a critical part of transmitting and receiving signals. Without them, radio signals would not be able to travel that far.

Think about it this way – if a DJ is speaking at the radio station and there was no way to boost the strength of the waves carrying his voice, then the only people that will be able to hear what he’s saying are ones standing in the room, or otherwise within hearing distance.

My dudes, I have found my new favorite jobsite radio! Ridgid sent me their 18-volt battery charging jobsite radio that, as the name indicates, both works as a battery charger and as a radio. I listen to music constantly so I consider anything that plays music as an important tool to have with me everyday. Lets see how it performs onsite.

The Radio

Upon opening the box I noticed this speaker is larger than I was expecting. Most bluetooth speakers you find these days are small enough to fit in your back pocket, but this is not just a speaker. It’s the size of a boombox, and produces the amount of sound you’d expect from a boombox. I plugged it in and turned on the digital display to find that there are several different inputs for sources. It takes a USB cord, an AUX cord, AM/FM stereo, and syncs up to bluetooth devices.

Please visit https://www.horizonhobby.com/content/spektrum-smart-technology for more information on the Spektrum™ Smart Technology.

Spektrum Smart technology is about offering a higher connection to your hobby. It’s a connection that puts you in complete control, makes you more aware and more confident about the capability of your equipment—all the while making vital components of your model easier to use than ever. The combined result is a sense that will make you wish everything about your hobby was “smarter.”

When you’re connected in a way Spektrum Smart technology offers—it’s All Systems Go. That’s how it feels. Components of your RC model talk to each other, connecting you systematically, automatically—responding to you instinctively, as they should be. And the best part? Spektrum users are already a part of evolutionary Spektrum Smart technology, a smarter way to have RC fun that’s just getting started.

LiPo batteries with Spektrum Smart™ technology practically take care of themselves. When combined with a Spektrum™ Smart Battery Charger, the unique parameters, history of the battery and more are all available the instant it’s connected. Charging a Smart Battery is easy as it gets, plus Smart LiPo battery packs are programmable to meet your exact charging needs. But the crowning feature of a Spektrum Smart LiPo battery is that it can be programmed to safely self-discharge to storage condition. That’s a Smart Battery pack!

The Only LiPo Battery You’ll Ever Want!
According to parameters you define, a Smart LiPo battery can automatically discharge to storage condition safely all by itself. It’s a unique innovation that avoids a popular form of performance degradation, promotes longer battery life and better performance over the life of the pack. That’s a VERY Smart Battery!

The Smart Difference.
Spektrum Smart LiPo batteries maintain an error log including the number of over-heat, over-discharge and over-charge incidents which can be helpful data in assuring that the battery you’ve chosen is right for the application. A Smart Battery uploads its charge parameters to a Spektrum Smart Charger automatically making charging as simple as pressing the “start” button. The charge rate of every Smart Battery is customizable, allowing you to take full advantage of packs with faster charge ratings.

Spektrum Smart technology is about offering a higher connection to your hobby. It’s a connection that puts you in complete control, makes you more aware and more confident about the capability of your equipment—all the while making your hobby easier. The combined result will make you wish everything about your hobby was “smarter.” Spektrum Smart LiPo Batteries are a part of a wide series of Smart technology products now available.

You’ll never have to set charge preferences for a Spektrum Smart battery until you want to. When a Spektrum Smart LiPo battery is connected to a Spektrum Smart charger, unique parameters and health of that Smart LiPo battery upload from the Smart memory microchip integrated into the battery. Through the charger, you can view and set preferences, such as charge rates, so that all you have to do to charge the pack every time is press the charger “start” button. Smart technology takes care of the rest.

A Familiar Connection.
Every Smart LiPo battery is factory assembled with the next-generation IC3™ or IC5™ output connector that’s conveniently compatible with older devices equipped with robust EC3™ and EC5™ connectors. You can use Smart Batteries with older systems, but only when connected to a Spektrum Smart device will all the benefits of Smart technology become obvious.

Spektrum Smart LiPo Batteries Store Unique Data, such as:
• Battery Brand
• Battery Type
• Battery Capacity
• Battery C Rating
• Individual Cell Voltage
• Battery Temperature
• Charge/Discharge Cycles

Spektrum Smart LiPo batteries also maintain an error log including the number of over-heat, over-discharge and over-charge incidents which can be helpful data in assuring that the battery you’ve chosen is right for the application.
