S3 Downconverter Official Update


Paul Jones
 

Ok this is an official update, just got off phone with Franco, he is tweaking one of the boards in the Downconverter before design is finalized, improving the sensitivity on the higher bands. He/me hope to have it in beta next month (April) and for sale not long after that. It can be installed from the factory or here at EladUSA in SC or it can easily be customer installed, one usb connector and an SMA to the back panel.

Still no price currently, but it will be available very soon.

As soon as I get more info/testing I will post more...

I would suggest a strong French Roquefort cheese and a glas of strong French Red Wine ;-)

Paul,
Along the way, it was noted that there will be three purchase options:  factory-installed, Paul-installed, and self-installed.

Would you please post the installation instructions so that we can assess if current owners will do-it-themselves or send their S3's to USA HQ for installation?

Thanks,

Ron Hunsicker

Ron,
I don’t have details yet, but as far as I know, take top case off just like you would to install the filters. Plug in the usb cable to correct internal slot, take out the cover for the antenna, screw in the sma connector and I think there may be a couple of screws to secure the module, replace the cover and install would be complete. I may be wrong, but as soon as I get my unit, I will post exact details.

Hi,

hardware and firmware are almost done. Integration with SW2 is moving forward.

I attach some photos.

A few pieces have been shipped to some people to be field-tested.

We are fighting with manufacturers and suppliers to be able to produce other pieces and satisfy your requests.

I'm not talking about pre-order but you can manifest your interest for the S3 Downconverter opening a support ticket.

Regards,


Vianney

A shipment to ELAD USA with also the TMates should take place next week.

Regarding the S3 downconverter, we hope so to not arrive to the second anniversary of this message... We could begin selling it but at an unreasonable price (nearly 2000€), and this is not our intention. The fact is that the worldwide supply issues of electronic components give us a lot of obstacles regarding the production process. An example : today quote for available Si5338 is almost 450€, for 1 piece.

To pick up words from one of the messages below; those who have expressed an interest have not yet been served.

We keep going forward anyway, regards,

Vianney
