Hello The Net:
Was just at the WWW.KEPS.IT website and saw a proposed frequency
plan for P3E.
I am starting to plan for Microwave receive only down converters and
transmit only up converters.
How firm is the frequency for the X band downlink at 10,490 MHz ?
Ditto for the L2 uplink of 1,263 MHz and S band uplink at 2,447 MHz ?
I am starting to look at possibilities of a common Local Oscillator (LO)
for some of the bands, but I am having no luck. Having a common LO or at
parts of a LO multiplier chain, would economize and maybe lend
themselves to being PLLed
to the station 10 MHz reference.
Has anyone come up with common LO and IF schemes for multiple P3E bands ?
My IC-910H will cover 1,263 MHz nicely, but it looks like all of the
bands will have a unique LO for the band, at least for X band and below.
Time to get ready....
