They are still selling the down converters for $25 each.  They also have
matching (different manufacturers) antennas and preamps for $25 each.  I
received the following from Shahna DeLong at Comet today:

It was a pleasure speaking with you.  I gathered some information regarding
the other two products that have been working with the Drake downconverter.
Hopefully this will help.

The "package" will contain the following:

                1 Lance 21 antenna......21" long
                                                   2.5-2.7 GHz frequency
                                                   21 dBi gain

                1 Conifer pre-amp.......15 db gain

                1 Drake downconverter...you know more about this than we do
for your applications  :)

The "package" will be $75.00 plus the shipping and handling.  (Each item is
$25.00).  Should there be quite a few of you in one area and you "pool" the
monies, we will offer this complete set for $65.00 each.  However, all items
will need to be shipped to one address.

For those of you who may not have followed the previous postings about these
units on this list server over the past several month, this is the same unit
that Drake sells for $75 and the same unit detailed in the Feb.. QST
article.  Many people have converted these units and they work very well. I
have not seen the antenna yet.  Judging by the description provided by the
Comnet people, it sounds like it should work very well for satellite
communications.  The antenna is rated at 21 dBi. and is a rectangular
"grill" type of antenna.

They also have 36" & 48" parabolic dishes at $30 & $40.  I will post the
information on other UHF/Microwave equipment which they sell as I receive

I am not connected with Comnet in any way, except as a satisfied customer.
If you have further questions about these units, please contact Comnet.
