Transverter Selector

This switch box was built to allow the use of 2 different radios to be used with 3 different transverters.

The transceiver switch (s1) selects the radio, and switches RF, key line, and ALC feedback. The two radios it was designed for are the Yaesu FT-817 and Flex 6500.

The transverter switch (s2) selects which transverter the selected radio is passed to; and the RF and key lines are the connections that are switched. The pictures above were taken of an earlier model; the schematic is of the box currently in use.

In my station, 10 mw is the power level required for the transverters, and all of them have common tx/rx I.F. ports. One of the radio inputs has a 14db attenuator in line, making it suitable for 1w drive level; the other radio input is unattenuated, and that one is used with the Flex SDR.

I built this into a plastic enclosure, and used single-sided PC board as a liner for easy soldering, good grounding and proper shielding. Coax lines are RG-174 (not much is critical at 28 Mhz, my usual IF frequency for transverters). The front panel lettering was made with a full sheet inkjet label, and cut to fit the front and rear panels. The PowerPoint file used to create it is included here as well.
