Re: Toshiba M57762 Power Module


Yaesu returned my 1.2 Ghz module, less the PA module, circuit board, relay
and all other components in the PA enclosure.  I am still workin with them
to return the missing parts.

The new Mitsubishi RA18H1213G module appears attractive as a replacement.
However, I have been unable to locate a data sheet.  RF parts has it listed
but doesn't have the data sheets on line.

According to RF Parts, the efficiency of this module is 20% versus 30 to 40%
for the M57762.  I am concerned about overloading the 736 switching power

Do you have any comments or suggestions on a source for the data sheets for
this part.
