Try something like this

Front and rear panel are removable, so are top and bottom

Re: Altium (DMC) 26 GHz modules

Christopher Bartram <cbartram@...>
 

Hello Noel

There are certainly some very useful DMC synthesiser, filter, and amplifier parts around. The devil is in the detail!

I brought a couple of 23GHz links eight or nine years ago, and there were synthesisers which could easily be tweaked to use both as a 24.04880GHz narrowband beacon, and as a 23.606 ( Ithink ...) GHz LO. Some of the cables were also worth salvaging: the Astrolab flexibles, in particular, are rated for 24GHz use, and you don't find that sort of thing every day ...

Modifying the units which I had wouldn't be easy without the right kit, as they were made using ceramic substrates and lots of wire bonded chip semiconductors.

I wrote a brief note for 'Scatterpoint' at the time based on my investigations of one synthesiser module. At the time there was other information available on the net.

Altium (DMC) 26 GHz modules

Noel G8GTZ
 

Hi

I have been offered a quantity of Tx and Rx modules from DMC Stratex 26 GHz links.

Can't find too much on the web but they appear to be complete LO, mix and Tx PA modules all connected by SMA (no waveguide)and are similar in construction to these 28 GHz units: http://www.ebay.com/itm/DMC-stratex-28GHz-MX-RF-plugin-transmitter-receiver-/130376990900?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&;hash=item1e5b1300b4

They are owned by the local IT salvage company who is landlord to GB3HV and there are several Rx and Tx/Rx modules.

Are these of any interest / useable on 24 GHz - I can bring deliver to Kempton Park or Martlesham.

Transverter Enclosure Wanted

Alan Melia
 

Hi Keith I have had a quick loook at some catalogues and cant see anything to meet your requirements either. It ocurrs to me that removable top,front and back might make a case rather difficult to build stoutly. Yhis sort of style is available in Hammond extruded cases but not to the size you require in my catalogues. It might be worth looking at Hammonds web site, and asking them to nominate a supplier if then dont deal direct in something you find suitable.

I wonder if a different approach would be easier. This is to mount the tranverter on a tray behind the front panel and use a rack-style case. I think that would be larger than your suggested dimensions. It would also be quite expensive, I guess you could be looking at 60 or so for all the bits you might need.

Best Wishes

Hi Keith,
RS have some nice enclosures, but you are looking at between £30 to £65, You didn't say what freq
the new transverter is???, if its above 13 cms, have you considered putting it at masthead ?

Re: Transverter Enclosure Wanted

Hi,
I think you may need to bite the bullet and buy on of those very expensive Hammond cases from Farnell,
They have moulded aluminium tops and bottoms. I put a centre piece in mine.
This means you can get at the pcbs easily.Failing that it would be a normal U case from Ebay from Ha5xxx
I was reluctant to spend the money and didn't want to make one, but the Hammond cases are very good and did what i needed
regards
Geoff

Anyone going to Martlesham Microwave Roundtable with 10 GHz VNA + N calkit?

David Kirkby <david.kirkby@...>
 

I've got an HP 85032B N calibration kit which is designed for use to 6
GHz. I'd like to get the capacitance of the open standards from the
85032B cal kit measured if possible, so I could use the kit in the 3
cm band. Unfortunately, used 85054B "N" calibration kits sell for 50%
of what I paid for a used 20 GHz VNA.

I wonder if there is anyone going to Martlesham Microwave Roundtable
who is taking a VNA able to measure to at least 10 GHz with a suitable
N calibration kit? If so, I'll bring along my open standards, with a
view to getting the phase measured to at least the 3 cm amateur band.

Is there anyone with an 85032B cal kit on the list who also owns one
of the better cal kits such as the HP/Agilent 85054B or 85054D so they
could measure their 85032B opens and let me know what the capacitance
is?

Dave, G8WRB.

Ham radio Fest Florence HamFest : live stream

Roberto <iw5bsf@...>
 

meeting between lovers, hill
ure and amateurs for the exchange between private radio, telephone, instrumentation, specialized publications, electronic materials and components of the era.
Saturday, April 6, 2013 time 09:00 to 18:00 entry
free
At: Royal Space in San Donnino, via San Donnino 4 Campi Bisenzio FI

This third edition of the Free Trade Agreement between radio amateurs, we decided to call it Florence Hamfest to emphasize the social and aggregation that the event has had in the last year and that has been a remarkable consensus and appreciation.

In the new home that offers 1,000 square meters of exhibition space, a parking area of &#8203;&#8203;over 4000 square meters, Bar - Pizzeria - Restaurant and playground for children, this year we added a multi-purpose room where presentations and events will be held amateur radio.

Mull of Galloway IO74np this week - 3 and 9cm

Alan
 

Hi there,

Just to say,  will be on holiday at the lighthouse at the Mull of Galloway this coming week.  I will be qrv on Sunday from 1200 since the wx looks fairly good.  Should be available other times especially  early evening but feel free to email or phone. Mobile coverage can be a bit patchy but hopefully ok.

I will be using the same 88cm offset dish for 3cm and for the first time on 9cm - Changing bands will take 10mins or so I hope.If very windy  will use a smaller 78cm one.

Power on 3cm is the usual 9w or so and 12w on 9cm. Operating freq will be .120 on both bands. Will try KST with my small yagi antenna to see if that improves matters.

This should be a good chance to work stations I wouldn't normally be able to... Snaefell on  IOM does block signals a bit to 81 and 82 square but still worth trying.

My phone is 07785744643.   Maybe some RS later in week?

Would be great to work some of you.
