I was scanning the DEMI catalog when I noticed that DEMI is offering
a xtal for their 1296 transverter which put it on 1268-MHz.
The transverter is offered in 25w or 50w:
25w: assembled $590
50w: assembled-only $800
1.5w: kit for $395 (might be adequate for satellite if mounted right
at the antenna).
You can order either 28 or 144 MHz IF and several configurations (see
My point is to inform that this is another source for mode-L (25w is adequate).
I have one of them in the 1296/28, 25w configuration for eme. Verrry
Nice! I special ordered mine with the A32 PLL which locks to a
10-MHz external freq. ref. Holds freq. to <1Hz. Since I already
have one of the rare DEMI 1268/144 Tx converters (made for AO-40) I
do not need a freq. switch.
There is a very long lead-time on orders (mine took 4-months).
