Re: Alternative transverter IF

Carl Moreschi

No the non-standard IF is just used in my program. Used in this way the K3 is unaware a transverter is being used. The K3 will show 28.xx mhz but my program will show the true transverter frequency. My program also has settings for the transverter drive level. And supports up to 5 different transverters.

Thanks Carl, very interesting, I was unaware of your software.

One question: Does the K3 remember that non-standard IF when used stand-alone at a later date - e,g, when out /P?

One way to do this is by running my N4PY Pegasus Plus software to
control your K3. My software supports up to 5 transverter setups. The
IF frequency can be set to anything. This allows the correct frequency
to be displayed in the software.

Thanks Alan. That was all I could find too, hence this post.

I checked the K3 and Cady books and there doesn't appear to be any way
of doing what you want. You can set the band, but not a particular
offset in the band. Unfortunately the offset provided is only
correctional and won't shift far enough for your purpose.

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 :-)
