1. I have one, but have never used it. If I am reading the satellite guide
the only current bird I can use one on (mode B, 435MHz -- not 432) is VO-52.
Is that correct?
Or is the TX-RX completely wrong? (RX+TX=581.005)
2. I have read that the 2510 (newer version) was much easier to use than the
any comment from current or former users?
3. The 2510 could accept a second, add-on oscillator board (the 2511) to
give you 435.5 as
well as 435.0. I am considering building a version of the board
re-crystalled to give me 432.0
(understanding that I will have to go through and re-tune the unit, as well
as adjusting the
RX-TX offset) --- but this seems like a nice "non-destructive" way to try
Or should I put it on the shelf and hope the next transponder bird uses the
same band plan
as AO-10/13? :-)
