I am allmost ready for working via Es’hail-2 Satellite. Both, my (first) Transverter and the Duoband-Feed for a 90 cm Offsetdish are ready to go.
Uplink runs from 144 MHz to 2,4 GHz with max. 20 W output into the 2,4 GHz Patch of the Duoband-Feed. The Downlink runs from the 10 GHz-Horn into a Downconverter to 50 MHz IF for NB Operation (as well as 950 - 1200MHz IF for WB-Operation). Because there are less than 2 m between the Antenna and the Transverter, I let the Downconverter for lower Temperatur-/Frequency-drift in the Transverter-Box.
