Oh, no...stop! My head hurts! Confusing indeed!:-) 

An *up*converter for S-band? What kind of receiver do you use *that* with?
Probably a photocell...:-)

Best to make it clear for the folks newly interested in SHF that a downconverter
isn't "down" because it's on the *down*link, but because it converts signals to
*lower* frequencies.

BTW, the link is:

and while we're talking S-band and bandplans and RUDAK (oh, my!)

    RUDAK A 9k6 0       436.006   2400.768   2401.747   10451.561

    RUDAK B 9k6 0       436.122   2400.887   2401.867
            9k6 1       436.109   2400.870   2401.847


Initial testing is focussed on RUDAK A 9k6 0 via the S2 transmitter at 2401.747
Mhz.
