Re: Alternative transverter IF

Colin Smithers

That is the question! But how? I can only set 28.0, or 50.0. Etc

Its possible I’m missing something obvious. Please have a go and tell me what you find 😊

 I could be wrong, but can’t you pick your freq. on the K3?

You need to change the Transverter Oscillator Frequency.

Most likely a Crystal, or if a Newer DDS Oscillator, the Frequency it is running at.

Try to find the Make and model on the internet to get the Data / Information

Hi all, 

I'm New here.

Does anyone know how to set a transverter IF to 28.5MHz, or any other frequency that is not 28,0, 50,0 etc? The incremental oscillator shift only goes so far i think.

Reason is I built a 70 MHz transverter from 28.5 as using 28.0 results in a a difficult spurious product.

If not I can always continue to subtract .5 in my head as i have done for the last 35+ years :-)
