Is that right, please? What's the Idq please? If I know, it is needed around 0,3 to 0,5A idq at least. So there is max. 0,6A of active current as photo shows.
24V x 0,6A x 50% eff. = 7,2W out
I am running 28V with Idq 0,5A. The output is modified by idea DK5DN
and input is my idea - make PCB line (add wire and solder) thick as I can. I am reaching 28V/2,2A in key down. There is 2W input (or less!) from LZ5HP transverter. I dont know the output. No power meter SRI.
I used idq around 0,33 amp.
My wattimeter have a slow rate measurement and i dont have how accuracy calibrate.
My tests i used 18 to 32 vdd. To 30 vdd, the current was 1,75 amp.
Some months ago i quited this project and started other LDMOS.
