To my knowledge the HX50\HX50L\HX90 where all designed to run on a saturated transmitter only which confines it to a 2W Hughes buc. This is also limited by the power supplied from the modem to the saturated transmitter and in the modem software. While HNS does produce a 4W saturated buck its not compatable with the modems listed above. For linear radio support an HX200 platform is required, the HX200 supports a wider variety of linear bucs as well as the standard 1W\2W saturated radios and can provide an internal clock feed OR will take a 10Mhz clock feed, and supports externally power BUCs as well.

The HX50 spec sheet lists only:

1 and 2 watt Ku-band
2 watt C-band
1, 2, and 3 1/2 watt Ka-band

I think they are all proprietary Hughes parts.

If you need more uplink EIRP I suggest a larger antenna.
