Evanescent filters are easy to make and will give you bandpass after the front end stage .

Build/buy a synth board to provide a lockable LO for TX/RX and bosh some i.f. passband filtering together .
  Add a couple of mixer stages and some control system/sequencing and you are there .  

The Birmingham lads (G8OHM)  have/had  PA modules at modest second hand prices for 8W output  .

I would start with the RX and use the Beacons available locally to you (GB3OHM on .900 and GB3ZME on .910 +/-a few kHz ) .

Have added a 5.7GHz VE4MA to my 60cm 10GHz offset dish ,off boresight in the horizontal - seems to have little influence to the 10GHz LNB and just needs you to offset on your rotator readout .

Hope to use my Kune TVTR on EME next , after 24GHz tests .

Hi Chris. Yes, I have read the W1GHZ bit about his trvrt, and I did buy some copper endcaps to try and make some filters for a laugh, just not got around to it yet. 

So far all the bands have been plug and play with a few bits of string between them, nothing that a basic foundation holder couldn't do, hi. SGL for 23, 13, 9 and a Kuhne on 3.  

I have bought the BATC 23Cm amp pcb and all the bits, another thing sitting on the self.  I even bought a hot plate to have a go at flow soldering, did try it on a test pcb with a few smd bits, works great so at least I have that tool in the box should I need it.

I'll keep thinking on the issue so see you on the other bands till then Chris, hi.

Re: 6Cm?

I agree,

It's a great project and certainly doesn't put a hole in your budget. Paul is good at responding to questions and shipping. One bit of advice, he also sells matching mixers that can easily be soldered on to the board by a 50+ y.o with failing eyesight and a normal soldering iron.

Subject: [UKMicrowaves] 6Cm?

Having succeeded in getting operational on 23, 13, 9 and 3Cm in the past 12 months that leaves 6Cm to sort out. 

With the Kuhne transverter being 600 Euro (£530 today) I was wondering if there were any other roads one could go down before I spend the kid's inheritance (Only joking, no kids). 

Any other transverter makers out there? or such.

If you fancy a build try the w1ghz uses pipe cap filters so fairly easy and not many components.

I can always run tests with you Ben we should have a fairly good path when conditions ok

Subject: [UKMicrowaves] 6Cm?

Having succeeded in getting operational on 23, 13, 9 and 3Cm in the past 12 months that leaves 6Cm to sort out. 

With the Kuhne transverter being 600 Euro (£530 today) I was wondering if there were any other roads one could go down before I spend the kid's inheritance (Only joking, no kids). 

Any other transverter makers out there? or such.

Hi Neil,
Put me down for one board in the next batch. By the time they are ready I might have cleared my current construction projects.

I now have requests for 62 of the silver-plated F6BVA 10 GHz-UHF
transverter PCBs, and several more tentative enquiries. The group buy
for the first batch of 50 is now closed, so I am collecting
expressions of interest for the next tranche, which will be in a month
or two. Please email me directly if you would like to join the next
group buy. I have arranged a group buy of the Schubert tinplate boxes.
We will also be doing a bulk purchase of mixer chips, FETS, and other
components and accessories if there is a demand. Many of the common
parts are available free to UKuG members from the Chipbank.
https://www.microwavers.org -> Support -> Chipbank

My intention is to keep the BVA-transverters-uk IO group focussed
tightly on the build details and support, purchasing admin and
discussions around associated accessories. Some of that is of general
interest (eg local oscs, 3cm PAs, IF solutions), so I might cross-post
an occasional update on the UKMicrowaves group. Links, technical
documents, pictures and information about the project will be posted
on the UKuG Wiki at
https://wiki.microwavers.org.uk/F6BVA_3cm_transverter

The IO group is public, so if you want to view the archive of
discussions, they are at https://groups.io/g/BVA-Transverters-UK

Anyone who is considering participating in the next group purchase of
boards, components, boxes etc, or would like to take part in the
technical discussions, is very welcome to join the group.

Re: RSGB 'Tonight at 8' online talk 'Starting Out on Microwaves by G4LDR'

Colin Ranson
 

Thanks

 

Realised now that if I left it, it eventually went to the talk. Clicking on ‘start’ took it somewhere else. Weird but ok now.  Will watch when I get some free time.

 

Thanks

 

Colin.

Hello Colin,

Just checked on my message above, it took me straight to last nights talk.

If you are having problems try going to the RSGB home page and find the 'Tonight at 8' page and select the talk you want from the list of talks.

Re: Eltek Flatpack2 PSU tracking numbers sent

Alan Melia
 


Yes indeed before Christmas I was issued a tracking number which it did not admit to being valid until the parcel was well on its way .....at the local office I believe. There are times buying postage labels were the system seems overloaded and very slow......I guess one of their peak periods. Delivery man just seems to get on with it it......more reliable than the s/w :-))

Has anyone checked their tracking number?   Mine is reporting not recognised

ISTR this has happened before, RM tracking not recognised, then the delivery turned up while I was staring at RM website, pondering why the no. didn't exist.
