Re: S band for 6 bucks...



I suppose that it could be described as C or S band,. The traditional limits
are:

L  1-2 GHz
S  2-4 GHz
C  4-8 GHz
X  8-12 GHz
Ku 12-18 GHz
K  18-26.5 GHz
Ka 26.5-40 GHz

73,

Cal Amps website too, and while it doesn't list the exact model number, the
range fits in with their other S band stuff. And I've never seen C band TV
stuff that wasn't waveguide input....
