According to the manufacturer, "The MTS10W Transmitter is a 10 watt AM Broadcast band synthesized transmitter that covers from 530 kHz to 1700 kHz in 10 kHz steps.
The transmitter frequency is set by running a configuration utility on a personal computer connected to the unit.
The power level which is continuously adjustable from 0.1 to 10.0 watts is also set using the USB configuration utility.
Additional features in the USB configuration utility include a visual indication of modulation, a display of the transmitters forward and reflected power to the antenna system, selection of which audio input is active, selection of which mode the audio selection is in, and a display of the DC input voltage to the unit.
The MTS10 employs a Class D RF amplifier and a Class S modulator which yields outstanding power efficiency and reduced operation costs. The efficiency is for a fully modulated output is 82% minimum and can be as high as 92% depending on frequency and the antenna characteristics.
