Re: 2.4GHz Converters



Visit the website of Kuhne Electronic Components at http://www.db6nt.com/
for a wide range of professional, amateur radio and AO40 converters,
transverters, preamplifiers and amplifiers.  The pricelist on the website is
not valid for the USA.  Contact SSB Electronics for USA distribution.  I
don't know whether these are the units Jon refers to.
