Thank you for the responses. The answer should have been obvious since I
was using my IC-821 to work through AO-40. To make it worse, I have a
couple of other rigs which have the 2M band. The next time we have a V/S
configuration I shall try to overcome my senior moment.
Hello Gene (and the list),
Your question reminds me of a question I've been meaning to ask!
My current S-band antenna is a simple integrated antenna/downconverter with
123 MHz IF, but I plan to install a P3E-ready dish and downconverter on my
crossboom this summer.
My best downconverter is a K5GNA unit with 145 MHz IF. I wonder how it'll
play on mode V/s? Can anyone comment on this?
I also have some more 123 MHz IF units, but their NF is unknown. I'd rather
use my AIDC 3731 from K5GNA, even if it means reduced performance on V/s. I
plan to optimize for HEO operation, but I'd be happy if I could also work
AO-51 in mode V/s.
Thanks for any help or advice!
