T800S C 12000 -50C

These days, it is getting harder and harder to find a ready supply of some of the finest carbon fiber in the world. We were able to purchase select inventory of T800S C 12000-50C on 7 Kg bobbins at a creditors auction. Their loss; our gain, your gain! Below are the specs:

We’ll be doing something different for this special. We will be taking bids for the fiber, per kilo in USD, for the month of October. Let us know the quantity that you wish to purchase (remember, it is packed on 7Kg bobbins, 4 to a box) and we will contact you at the end of the month if you have a winning bid. We may require a deposit to hold your fiber as we expect many bids. Let the bidding begin.

5900-6400 MHz 20 Watt Power (Microwave) Amplifier


Our special this month is a 5.9 to 6.4 GHz solid state GaAs FET amplifier designed for various commercial and military applications. The amplifier provides 58 dB of linear gain with a P1dB of +43 dBm.

This is a high reliability item and will function in austere and rugged military environments
