Re: Link budgets??

My IF choices are likely to be dictated by available equipment.  I'd envisage
using 2m for my S band IF and may have to go to 10m for my L band, or transvert
via 2m and hope I can keep the two IFs far enough apart, before final
conversion to 1269 MHz.

Converting from 2400 to 28 MHz would be nice (the HF box is by far the best Rx
here), but might be tricky, so will probably settle for 144 IF.

Pity I can't open up the HF box for general coverage Tx, would have made
transverter operation a lot more flexible. :-(
