Solar powered on 10 GHz352 viewsThis 10 GHz equipment is owned by Dale Hughes VK1DSH, who designed and built the transverter, including a digital controller managing sequencing, CW generation, CW beacon and displays the input voltage on an LCD panel. The driver is an IC202 on 144 Mhz. The battery is contained in the bag at the foot of the tripod and is charged by the solar panel.

feed dipole for 2.4 GHz416 viewsHaving left the real feed at home, this dipole was soldered to an N connector and placed at a point where I thought the focal length was, based on the length of the original feed arm. Comparing the two later at home showed that the coax had placed the dipole within 20mm of the right position.

Antennas and car489 viewsThe three antennas on the mast are shown here against the clouds. The high light level from the clouds means the exposure for other parts of the photo was lower than ideal. When viewed in full size the details are readily seen.Jun 28, 2009
