Keps is in Italy and has no US distributor that I know of so be prepared to
pay a pretty price since we have such a weak dollar at the moment. I chanced
upon a Pacific Monolithics MMDS converter on e-bay awhile back but I haven't
used it yet. The particular one I have has an 123MHz IF. The surplus ones
are a little hard to find, you have to be ready to pounce when you see one.
I think someone already mentioned it but downeast microwave is another
