R: Weak Signal Banquet NF numbers



Hi  Mike

There are mixers that use a suitable phase relationship (similar principle
to phase SSB )or use a high Q of the mixer circuit (similar to filter SSB)
to suppress the unwanted  image band  or at list attenuate it to a great
degree.
Using  your  Anaren image reject mixer is like to add a passband filter in
front to a regular DBM mixer to remove from its input the power of noise
coming to it from the image band.
The advantage to remove the image noise from the input of  a mixer has been
already discussed in this round table.
