Hi Jeff!

It would be nice if it went that high, up to 2.4 GHz. You could still use
a downconverter like you would have used for AO-40 or AO-51, and put
its output into an SDRplay or other SDR receiver. You would still be able
to take advantage of SDR that way. I'm pretty sure my old downconverter
I bought from K5GNA 10 years ago would work fine through the SDRplay
or FUNcube Dongle Pro+ (or other SDR device), where I'd set my software
to tune the 2m output from the downconverter.
