Looks like there may be some useful components in there.
May hit the 'Buy' button in 3...2...1...

There is some info posted on BATC forum. (Topic is 3.4GHz gain solution perhaps?)

Hi Nigel

How about the Ionica, would that do?  Imight be able to let you have one, if you can't find one on e-bay.

Errrrrr, the FCC is taking away that and other bands for 5G/other stuff, with no provision for us lowly amateurs.
What of OfCom intentions? I'm out of touch, but these things are likely to go global.
The ARRL is putting up a minimal fight:

Thanks for all the replies.
I think I had seen the one Andy linked to but had skipped over it as it was more expensive than I would have liked.
They have a a best offer but only appear to be willing to drop to £57

Hi I bought a similar one from Pollin a few years ago.

As far as I remember gain is around 20 dBi.

I manage to receive GB3MHz beacon if condx allow. The past few weeks condx are too bad

Best regards Rien PA0JME

Re: Directional coupler info sought

This product range ended up with MAcom. You could request info at:

https://www.macom.com/products/product-detail/2020-4018-20

In the main table they indicate that these are one octave only, yet the 4018 isn't explained. Yes, the -20 does mean 20dB.
I think the FSC16179 refers to the physical footprint because numerous OS (and MAcom) couplers use it.

Directional coupler info sought

John Lemay
 

Hi all

I have a directional coupler from Omni Spectra. It is marked with FSC16179
and PN2020-4077-20.

It also indicates that the coupling is -20dB.

I'd like to know the useful frequency range but can't find info on the web.
Any suggestions ?

My analyser only goes to 3.2GHz, at which point the coupling rises to about
-23dB, so I'm hopeful this could be useable from around 5 to 10GHz. Wishful
thinking perhaps !

Regards

John G4ZTR

Hi

 

15 EU  = same price for custom xtal,  60 deg= same price, in fact there is no stock so any frequency is tailored

Yes, you are right,stock  Crystals are reasonable, but one cut to order ? especially if its going to be ovened ? 

 

Except for the most exacting demand I would use something like an Si5351, cheap as chips ready made board with an Arduino programmer ?   No idea what the phase noise is like though.  Probably a bit grim, but hey ho..... to test the concept ?

I have a couple or three ready to be tested when I can get this poor old head down to it.

If I recall rigth , a xtal from Eisch is approx EU15 , maybe even less
if ordered directly to Klove(?). I don't find this expensive given the
quality.
