MY EQUIPMENT ON 1296 MHZ
My Equipment on 1296Mhz is a Transverter by SSB
Electronics, the LT230-S using the 144Mhz as an IF,
power output is round 30 watts.
I also have the TS-2000X which is equipped with
the 1296Mhz module which gives round 10 watts output.
As for the Amplifiers I have a DL2AM Amplifier with
round 100 watts output, I also have a TH308
Tube Amplifier which is rated round 400 watts output.
As for the antennas I have a vertical antenna by
Diamond Antennas which I use for the local traffic,
I also constructed a long Yagi from the Dl6wu design.
For EME I have a TVRO meshed Dish antenna, it is a
3.05 mtr dia (10foot) in size and was used for
satellite reception. The feed is by OK1DFC and is
the Septum feed. The receive mode is circular.
I also have a similar septum feed but it is round
shaped and includes a choke to.
Rotation of the antenna is via a Prosistel, the
PST-2051 which was configured with a slow ratio gear
box for easy tracking. I plan to add the W2DRZ
tracking system for better tracking. The elevation is
via a 24 inch Jack.
The preamps are by DJ9BV and it’s a cavity input
type preamp with a very low noise figure and
with round 20 db Gain , a second preamp follows but
is the basic type.
