Through some reorganization at work in the past two months, I have suddenly gained ready access to a lab full of RF test equipment again. Two years is a long time to go without. Apologies for the cell-phone photograph of the screen.
I took the W1GHZ 1152-MHz LO board over to have a look at it during lunch. I’m seeing -11 dBm at 1152.007 MHz. I am a bit dubious of the last digit of the frequency (even at 300 Hz RBW) but I’m sure there’s a frequency counter around somewhere. Anyhow, I need to put a MMIC (or two) on the transverter board. That should be a nice evening project along with the W6PQL preamp kit that showed up today.
