Re: AO-40 spreadsheet



None of the downconverters are going to survive transmitting into them for
even the slightest amount of time. I've seen reports of them being popped by
doing nothing more than changing bands, or turning the radio on.

The best solution I've seen so far is the one Fred, W0FMS, suggests. It has
an MMIC fuse in the subject line and has been posted in the last day or so.
It uses a TCK kit, slightly modified to protect the downconverter.
