|Here it is shown connected to a
120w amplifier, which is
sitting on top of it.
This transverter can deliver
about 25w on it's own, and runs on 12v, making it suitable for portable
service. When at home with 28v available, I use it with the 120w amp.
It's a hybrid, and consists of a basic DEMI
transverter board kit, a driver board out of a Spectrian amplifier, and
my own T/R control board.
I also added a small MMIC I.F. amplifier to the
original transverter PCB to make up a little gain in the receiver.
Power requirements are 13.5v @ 12a at 25w output.
The local oscillator and transverter-to-radio
interface is a separate unit, and is located elsewhere in the station.
