As of 4/1/13 Tricom Research Inc. will no longer be selling the 11000-00692 (two port TCR-MBA-50 non-wideband capable amplifier) in its current configuration. We are upgrading this product to a new version which allows the customer to return the amplifier to the factory for a quick and cost effective upgrade that will enable the Wideband Networking capabilities of the amplifier. The 11000-00692 part number will remain the same for customer ordering purposes. The end user will see no difference in SATCOM and LOS performance or size, but there will be some slight changes that will be noticeable, such as a new WB antenna port (this WB antenna port will not have the BNC connector populated. It will have a water tight cover installed instead and its Wideband features will be disabled in the firmware of the amplifier). Please refer to the new TCR-MBA-50 datasheet (document number 90400-01072 Rev E) for further information.
Tricom Research, Inc. is proud to announce the launch of our newest RF amplifier product, the TCR-MBA-50 WB Multiband RF amplifier.
The TCR-MBA-50 WB is a State of the Art software defined Multiband/Wideband RF Amplifier designed to extend the range of modern Handheld and Manpack Transceivers. The Amplifier supports emerging Wideband Networking Waveforms including the Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) and the Advanced Networking Wideband Waveform (ANW2), as well as currently fielded Narrowband Waveforms such as IW, DAMA, SINCGARS and HAVEQUICK.

The TCR-MBA-50 WB has successfully been tested, and is currently in use, with Wideband Transceivers to extend the range of SRW and ANW2 networks providing
> 3X the area coverage then with standard Transceivers alone.
An optional Bias Tee, the TCR-BT-01, allows the TCR-MBA-50 WB to be remotely located to the antenna location to take full advantage of transmit and receive amplification.

The TCR-MBA-50 WB
(EXT) is similar in functionality and foot
print as the TCR-MBA-50 WB but has an
extended heat sink for high duty cycle
