You could start with the 5.1 GHz DRO in an old C Band LNB for the LO. Add an
LNA IC, and Mixer. Use the IF section in the C Band LNB to cover cable loss.

Hi all!
What schemes are available for someone who only has a funcube dongle?
It tops out at 1700 MHz. I am thinking hetrodyining using a brick and
a double balanced mixer. Block down converter is another option.
Any other options on the cheep side?
