Re: AO 40 Recovery program v1.1



The previous message makes me ask:

How do you "calibrate" the downconverter to your radio so you know the
frequency is accurate? Would you get enough harmonics from a Xtal source,
what frequency would you use for the Xtal? Or do you just believe the
equipment manufacturers that it will be correct? Don't have a downconverter,
just preparing my mind so I'll be ready!
