I hope to be on 23 cm myself by the end of 2017. Great stuff!
How do you get on 23 cm 1296.2 MHz USB for SOTA activations without forking out loads of dough for an ICOM IC-910 or IC-9100? Answer a lightweight all mode 2.5 watt 23 cm transverter from Hristiyan LZ5HP in Sofia Bulgaria. The current unit on offer is version 2.3.
The 23cm transverter’s default configuration is simplex with the local oscillator (LO) set to 1152 MHz. The unit has internal jumpers to change the LO frequency by +/- 2 MHz, this option permits simplex operation on 1294 MHz FM. A separate jumper configures the unit for simplex or repeater operation while a fourth jumper configures the repeater offset which in VK is 20 MHz. We don’t have a 23cm repeater…
