6cm Receive addition?

Post by G8NZR » Mon Aug 10, 2020 4:03 pm

Hi all.

We still have to replace the 70cm faulty receiver which we will do very shortly. Sorry for delay.

During the lockdown, I explored 6cm as a simple input for YT. I've played with a receiver and very pleased with some of the results I've had. So I am thinking about installing a 6cm receive on 5665MHz - just for experimental reasons more than anything :geek: . We have a spare input on the logic, so adding this is very simple.

The only thing concerning me, is this ATV frequency is in the main Drone band, so may suffer interference from time to time (Mind you we get that on 23cm already!).

Any comments?

Thats great news. Ive been watching the NEWS section but not seen any update re 70cm issue and only found your comment here by luck.
Im hoping to go /m as soon as the 70cms input becomes active again so I can ACTIVATE YT.
Looking forward to it as I dont get out much these days if you know what I mean

Hi Ken

I've been snowed under with work over the last few weeks - everyone is going back to work after the Virus, and things don't work anymore so working many hours longer than normal to get on top of things. Graham has also not been able to get to site due to a recent minor op, but he's recovering okay now.

Regarding new posts etc, there is an RSS feed which you can subscribe to and you get notifications of new posts when they happen.

6cm: I've just added an amp to the front end so hope it works okay when we install it, and doesn't get swamped by any 5Ghz on site or in the vicinity.

Have fun, and I'll post when we've changed the 70cm receiver.
