Satellite Communication
Line Amplifiers
Bench Instrument

  • L, C, X, Ku, DBS, Ka Bands
  • Multi-Bands
  • Driver, Cross Site and Laboratory Instruments
  • Flat Response
  • Portable
  • Custom Options

The BSL series of Satellite Communication Line Amplifiers are designed to compensate for losses in microwave and RF signal paths, either between system components and across site or as a driver for high power transmission amplifiers. The amplifiers operate in specific C, X, Ku, DBS and Ka uplink or downlink frequencies and some multi-band models provide the versatility of covering both up and down link frequencies. Alternatively, some models cover more than one link frequency regime.
