Modification of Despatch M1A, 1 Kw
These generators were originally designed and
manufactured in the late 70’s. The high voltage
transformer had been discontinued years ago and the
price of the original 2M131-04A magnetron tube has
significantly increased over the last four years. Since
there are multiples of these generators ( 15 – 20 )
units on a system, a complete modification was
engineered to alleviate the whole system needing
Purpose of Modification:
To replace outdated and discontinued components
