So, I’ve got a transverter board for 900, 1.2, 2.3, and 3.4 coming. These come with a parts kit and both the boards needed.
This is all nice, but what else does one need? Well, you will need an enclosure and definitely a sequencer. So, time to check DEMI for a sequencer. And then, SMA PCB board connectors.
Maybe all the parts will get here at the same time!
I am currently working on some microwave transverters of W1GHZ design. In fact, there is a group buy going on of these transverters, and will be until the 17th of October 2010. Check out the below email from James French, W8ISS:
I am officially announcing that I have opened up purchases of boards and parts for this years group purchase of boards and parts for the W1GHZ transverters.
You can find the page and links for purchasing here:
You’ll have two options for purchasing: mail using Money order or Paypal. Realize that if you use the Paypal option, the price increases by one dollar
per board or kit so as to offset the Paypal charges.
I will be using Priority mailing via the USPS as I did last year since I had no problems with everyone receiving their package. The cost there is 15
dollars which should pay for the shipping plus insurance. As for International orders, I am still figuring that out..:( I have to check on the Global priority to see what it would be. Please ask before you place an order. I should have more information in a couple of days about this.
I have placed the order deadline as October 17th. I would like to have everything out by Thanksgiving if possible and the latest by the end of November. That is my goal currently and everyone knows how that can
Come on, you know you want to play with microwaves!
