Are these downconverters actually still available? I got the impression 
looking at the website that he sold through E-bay and when you go to E-bay,

like the KEPS and the DEM but it would be great to get a surplus one at a 
better price.
 I was offered a cal amp at a good price but I wasn't sure I was ready to
