Date- August 6, 1999: Finished step
2 and everything works great! Time in step two to date is 16
The receiver is better than my TS570, but the 570 beats it with DSP!
The filters in the K2 are just great- very smooth and little ringing. The phase
noise in the K2 is better than my TS570, very low.
Total time to end of Step 2: 32 hours
Date-August 17, 1999: Step three
finished; time in at this step
17 hours. Total time to date- 49 hours. Now on to the
Date- August 28, 1999: Most alignments
are finished and the rig appears to work
just great! Here are a couple of the test results:
Rx Sensitivity----- 3.750mhz------- -145dbm *** HP 8656B signal generator ***
Tx Power Output-- Good on all bands and seems to follow power settings +- .2w
Tx frequency is within 100hz on all bands and clean. I had a vco
frequency spur problem on 10m, but bandpass filter alignment seems
to have fixed it. I looked at Tx output on all bands with spectrum analyzer
and all bands look good.
