Re Kuhne 5.7ghz PA

Dave
 

Hello,
I am connecting up a Kuhne PA MKU PA 6CM -15W A.
I am confused by their data sheet.
It looks like the 12v connection labelled ‘+12v DC’ goes to a fuse then the supply voltage rail +12-14v DC. The other +12v connection is labelled ‘+12v DC permanent voltage’. I can only assume that this is the connection that goes to their sequencer. Has anyone come across this?

Re: UKuG Talk on NanoVNAs by G8DKK - 20:00 Wednesday 9th December

We haven't said that they are not being recorded.

Chris G0FDZ is giving his talk from last month at some other venues, the recording of his talk is likely to be available when this is completed. We plan to record subsequent talks and will get them uploaded to YouTube in due course, subject to agreement from the speakers for their recordings to be released.

For info....

The UKuG calendar complete with full add-to-diary facilities is fully public here, not on groups.io
https://www.microwavers.org/main/ 

Apart from talks/events it will in the coming weeks get the 2021 UK contest calendars

Predicting other microwave events in 2021 is tricky, not helped by Covid, but do look here (or send us updates) for others too:

C Band LNB FOC

Nick Gregory G0HIK
 

I bought this LNB with the idea of using it to get on 9cms. But as I've bought an SG-LABS it is surplus to requirements. I'm happy to pass it on for the cost of postage if it will help very someone get on the band.
It says it only goes down to 3.625g, but I guess with an I.F of 1750 it will cover 3.4g.
Apparently it needs 100meg up the i.f. to lock it, I've also no idea of its condition.

Re: C-Band LNB on 3.4GHz?

Nick Gregory G0HIK
 

I also have one of those LNB's which I had intended to use to monitor the Blackpool ATV repeater. But now just about all ATV has gone digital I've lost interest.
I used the LNB to check the output of my SG-LABS. I found the signal just 10khz away from where it should have been. Maybe the LNB and the AOR scanners frequencies were both in error and cancelled out, but I was surprised to the find the signal as close to where it should have been.
I didn't notice any drift over the short period of testing also.

It would also be nice if these and any events were put into the Calendar that comes with this list on groups.io.

That way people can be automatically reminded of the event and, for those outside the event time zone, will automatically show up with the recipients time zone and permit them to import it into their own calendars. :)

and +1 for recording, so we can watch at our convenience.

cheers

Re: On 9cms now, if anyone is free

Thanks Brian,
I guess from your portable site there may be a chance of us working on 9cm.
I don't recall working any GMs when I was previously on 9cm. I should check my log!

How many unique stations (#) have you worked on the band
Hi Sam,

3 total. GM4BYF,GM8MJV, and GM4JTJ. Jon in Montrose is my best dx at 90km. He's a difficult path and I have to bounce the signal off possibly a large radio mast to the south; I also have to do that on all the bands 70MHz all the way up to 9cm. I can hear GB3CSB on 9cm at about -14dB most of the time at 48km even though I'm well out of its beam and not LOS. I'd been hoping to get out /P near my holiday location in IO74, which has a good sea path to North Wales, but covid put paid to that this year.

Re: C-Band LNB on 3.4GHz?

I have a U.S. LNB for 3.4, Titanium satellite C1W-PLL C Band LNB, which works very well. 

Can hear OHM  on its own, only slight oddity, tunes reverse, LO is 5150Mhz. I also have the Chap to fit it. 

Needs a big dish though.
