HURRICANE 350 AMP & INSTRUCTION MANUAL

Post by Ez2cDave » Monday, 19 November 2012, 9:01 AM

Back in 1990 or 1991, I bought a HURRICANE 350 amp . . . I got out of radio for about 20 years and never actually used it, but I am back now - LOL ! . . .

Here are a few pics, including the Instruction Manual . . . Notice, it does have the four MRF-492's . . .ENJOY !

I haven't seen one of them in ages. Very nice, very clean, and the instruction to boot. Thanks for the pics.

I wish we could ATTACH images, instead of having to LINK to them. If a website goes down, the image or data is lost to the Forum.

Anyway, as promised here are cropped scans to make the print as large as possible, within the 800 X 800 limits of the Board.

Cool stuff. Thanks for posting that. I really dig the variable relay delay. I'll have to keep that in mind.

If anyone needs other views of the internals, I can shoot closeups, as required.

Well, since you offered, would you mind snapping a shot of the back of the front panel please? Thank you!

Is this what you were interested in ?

The "Remote Cable" would be EASY to make, since only 7 of the 9 pins are used. I believe those are standard "MOLEX" connectors and 8-Conductor rotator cable or even individual wires, bound together with heat=shrink tubing, would get the job done !

Yes it is and thanks so much. Do you plan on trying it out soon? Data sheet for the 492 can be found here http://**NON-SPONSOR LINK**/transistors/mrf492rev0d.pdf

It said it was a "non-sponsor" link. I imagine the forum did it. Unfortunately, that makes it very inconvenient for people wanting to share data. I found the file by Googling the part of the link that was not blocked.

Need any more PICS of the amp ?

I found the correct type of MOLEX connectors to use to make the Remote Cable . . .

I'm not sure about why you can't posts pics. You may have to make a certain number of posts before you can. Search around a little. They probably have something about posting pics.

I just picked one of these up and wanted to know if I can still get parts for this Amp and how many watts dose this Amp push out? I've downloaded the manual you post. Very helpful. Thanks for sharing.
