One thing that became apparent when using a single XDK PLL board in a dual-band 2.4/3.4 GHz transverter system, is that the PLL’s limitation on producing
Kuhne provide a PLL Lock status LED on the PLL board of their G3 transverter modules. This LED is inside the module, which is great when
I was caught by surprise out in the field the other day, when my new Kuhne MKU 10 G3 432 appeared to not work. But it
My Down East Microwave Inc 3W 10GHz amp kit arrived in the mail recently. It was ordered on 14/4/11 and arrived 20 days later on 4/5/11.
Here’s a rundown of my Trimble Thunderbolt GPSDO project. It provides an accurate 10MHz reference for the transverter Local Oscillator PLLs. The existing Thunderbolt mounting holes
This is a small and convenient microwave signal generator, for use in the shack or out in the field as a check source. It is based
Here is a quick review at the RF Ham Design tri-band ringfeed for 9, 6 and 3cm, model # FPF R963, and accessory mounting bracket, CLX-1.
Well, I finally got a chance to have a play with my new “ZL PLL” board from Wayne, ZL2BKC. First thing to do was organise a
The Kuhne MKU xx G3 432 transverter modules have inbuilt OCXOs LOs (Oven Compensated Crystal Oscillator Local Oscillators), and whilst very good, they can be locked
