The old UEK-2000 downconverter was a good 2.4 Gc unit.  Did you get
the entire unit including the  three turn helix and dish?  They were
a single unit originally.  The green box behind the helix reflector
contained the downconverter, 2400 to 144 MHz, thus 2401 to 145 MHz.
Power was 13.5 VDC fed from one of the two RG 141 coax cables and
terminated in CENTER panel connector which served as a mount for the
entire feed/converter.  The other RG 141 coax was the 2 M IF down coax
and was the type N connector to the RIGHT of center when the mounting
bracket was toward the observer.  A double male N adapter connected the
helix to the converter box to the left.  Does that give you a start??
