Re: 1296 Transverter design advice

Our San Diego Microwave (Ham) Group has a supply of surplus Qualcomm
Omnitrack synthesizer boards, 10 MHz TCXOs and conversion information which
make great LOs for 1296 MHz with a little modification. Other versions are
available which work for the  2.3 GHz band. Multipliers are also available
to use these as LOs for 10 GHz as well. Other items of possible interest
might be  convertable 1 watt 10 GHz PAs and 1.5 dB NF 30 dB gain  10 GHz
LNA assemblies. Contact Chuck (WB6IGP) at  clhough@pacbell.net
