Path plots show good coverage of the current user base.
It is hoped that those that can access the repeater now but can not see it due to Wifi etc. will be able to see it on 3.4ghz. Its planned to start some test transmissions from the site ASAP.
Upconverter board mods underway.
20w PA has arived. Feeder is run from the mast to the rack
Digilite board, LO board are ordered. Everything else for digilite still needed
Anyone in the group who has unwanted spare components left over from their Digilite builds, please consider donating them to the build.
Funds are now running very low.
Wanted also a Haupage PVR -USB2 for a good price please keep your eyes open for one. (system will run from a netbook so must be the usb version)
I now have a WinTv PVR USB2. on its way
Contoller board for Digilite has arrived.
Thank you Richard BYI for making us a special Hex file to display the 3.4GHz frequency correctly
Metal work is finished.
Next the controller board build
Thanks to the group for the components and donations towards the KM 3.4GHZ build.
Last night I completed the Digilite controller and the Digilite TX board assembly. (minus the IC on the underside ofthe board which hasnt arrived yet)
Next job is to finish off the 3.4ghz mixer board mods and get it off to Rob to tune the filter.
The 3.4Ghz rack is now complete and ready for testing Hopefully this weekend.
Need Robs assistance in setting up the MK808.
Next goal is to complete an antenna next week in time to use the system myself in the Summer fun contest.
So hopefully a good chance for the KM group to test their RX systems.
The 3.4Ghz rack is now operational.
Thanks to Rob today for some fault finding and programming the MK808
A nice DVB-S picture was radiated across the shack.
Work on an antenna will be done this week
