What is The Polar Explorer?

Updated: Apr 14, 2019

The Polar Explorer is a breakthrough in transmitter design which brings much higher efficiency to SSB and CW transmitters. Most 'linear' amplifiers run at around 55 to 60% efficiency, which means a lot of extra power supply capacity is required, along with extra cooling and dissipation capacity. By increasing efficiency, The Polar Explorer significantly reduces power supply requirements as well as cooling. From this, significant reductions is cost, size, and weight can be realized for a given power output level.

Is it an Amplifier?

NO! It is a transmitter! The Polar Explorer handles the transmitter processing end-to-end, from microphone or key to antenna. It works with your station transceiver, which then only functions as a rec

Can I still use my logging program?

YES! The Polar Explorer interfaces with your station transceiver via it's CAT port. So how can you connect a PC logging program? The Polar Explorer provides a second CAT port that connects to your PC.
