I am a beginner and need some help with hardware to send and receive from QO-100 without a PC.
I have done some test with Windows - SDRAngel - Lime SDR Mini - CN0417 Amp and a WLAN Booster AB003
On Rx I have a LNB converting to 739 mHz to the Rx side on the Lime SDR Mini
I use a Helix antenn to transmit.
It seems to work good and I also sent some mail to Winlink via IS0GRB.
Now to my question:
I plan to use a Yaesu FT-857D or a Icom IC-705 for send and receive.
To my understanding a have to use a transverter to convert 432 mHz to 2400 mHz on Tx
and 10489 mHz to 432 mHz on the receive side. But I can't found a suitable transverter.
Most off the example i found use the tranverter as a Upconverter to transmit and some WebSDR to receive.
I will just use ONE radio both for Tx and Rx
Have I missed something?
