History[contribute]

James Duble (May 5, 2007): Established in 1988, and based in Bulgaria the company specialises in developing HF power products for commercial, government and amateur markets. In 1999 Acom launched its 2000A high-power automatically-tuned HF linear. First unveiled at the Dayton Hamvention in May of that year, this 1.5kW amplifier has been acclaimed by many top DXers and contesters as the best on the market.

Similar in many respects to the Alpha 87A, it has more features, is significantly cheaper, and yet an equal to Alpha in terms of quality of design and construction.

More recently, ACOM launched its 1000 amplifier, a manually-tuned amplifier for 1 kW output and covering all HF bands plus 6m. I was particularly pleased to obtain the first production sample for review. Although Acom amplifiers have been available for only a couple of years, the fruits of its handiwork have been visible for much longer in the Alpha 91b, which was entirely developed and manufactured by Acom under contract from Alpha. This amplifier was one of Alpha's more popular and successful products.
