If you're looking to check out your S band receiver, here's a good way to 
test it. Go to JN1GKZ's home page and check out the bottom of his "mod 3 
page" for the Drake 2880. URL:
You will see a nifty little harmonic generator made out of a 10K resistor and 
1SS85 diode. The diagram suggests using 50 MHz, I use 400 MHz from my HT. 6th 
harmonic = 2400 MHz. Works slick!
