A Clever Bias Tee

Don't destroy your expensive down converter! Or your transceiver!

This bias tee is intended for use with any outdoor satellite down converter
and it will not only protect from accidental transmission into your
converter's output. It will also allow you to set your S-meter to a good

1. It is a bias tee (feeding DC to your converter through the coax cable)
2. It is a dummy load if you accidentally transmit backwards into your
3. It is an RF attenuator


        Down East Microwave has recently introduced one of these also.
DEMI's is reputed to handle up to 50W (!) for a short period of time.
