Re: AO-40 S band




My notes say that the main uplink was on 70cm.  Not knowing which way AO-40 was going to be configured, I built my station 13cm downlink with a 300 mhz IF, so I could use either 2m or 70cm up.  Turns out that was a good decision.

If you have a wide-band receiver, perhaps you could modify your S-band converter to use a different frequency?  I set my LO to 2.1 ghz, if I recall.

Then I remembered that I used to have QSOs on AO-40 with the same gear that I still have, but I do not remember and can not find any notes as what band we used for the uplink.
