Subject: [amsat-bb]  mmds downconverters for ao-51? 

Has anyone tried one of the itfs mmds downconverters like this 
one on ebay: 


for ao-51 s band downlink? 75 ohm out and looks cheesey but 
less than $30 shipped. it's cheap enough for me to play so I 
bought one to experiment with, maybe just to remove the 
downconverter. I would welcome stories of your experience or 
just advice.
