A 16x2 LC display shows the operating state of the amplifier, further LED bars show the output power level. Various protection circuits monitor several parameters, for example current intake, voltage, SWR, temperature, fan rotation etc. This ensures that the amplifer protects itself even when the antenna is malfunctioning. The BLA amp has three separate antenna connectors which can be assigned to different bands and which will be selected automatically. The built-in power supply can be adjusted to various input voltages, this makes this amplifier useful for international use, for example at DX-peditions.
