1296MHz TRANSVERTER UPDATE #3

txrx

Progress on the 23cm transverter!

On the TX section a Mini Circuits GALI-84 MMIC driven by an ERA-2 provides 100+mW of power. Due to unwanted feedback  the ERA-2’s bias resistor had to be increased until the self oscillation was tamed (a bit dodgy solution but it worked…). On the RX section there is a Mini Circuits  PGA-103 followed by a MAR-6. Only the high power PA (the target is 10W) needs to be developed now and we are done!
