Hi Alan,


At the moment I drive an SG-Lab 23cm transverter with 3w from an IC-706MK2g (the least I can get the power down to using the internal twiddle pot, I don’t use the menu power setting) and I don’t suffer any overshoot that I can measure. Even with G3XDY QRO not too far away I don’t suffer any ‘crunches’ on receive.    I also use it on 432MHz  with a 13cm SG-Lab transverter.


I am soon going to dedicate a ‘Mutek’ed’ IC-271e as the prime mover for 23cm so we’ll see how it goes with that.


Good luck on 23cm


Best regards


Colin de G8LBS.

You’ve got me worried now. I was hoping to get into 23cm as a newcomer by using my existing IC-7100 and a bought transverter from SG Labs to get me on the air. I have been studying the effects of ALC overrun to ensure I keep any spurious emissions to a minimum and I have also done the path loss calcs because I want to learn and do this hobby properly.

Oh! Just like BT with ADSL.

We should be setting an example about pollution. How can we complain to others when we are guilty of the same offence?

People around Japan are complaining about drinking quality water being released into the Pacific.  Idiots are complaining about 5G.  People don't get spectrum pollution.

Yep how dare you critise or point blank refuse to accept they have a problem, even when they wiping out half the amateurs in the area, which is what happened locally when someone used one on a local high point.

I pointed them to look at last years convention talks. I think half the problem is they don't understand and don't want to be educated.  If you try and educate them how dare you!

Unfortunately the days of when operators understood or cared 2 hoots about phase noise , over driving linear s etc etc are long gone ....if some one has got a 9700 , IC910, FT991 etc etc they are not going to stop using it or sell it and buy a transverter and decent HF radio ....whatever that might be just cos Reg or anyone else says there signal is crap
