Portsdown in VK1

Post by vk1dsh » Wed Oct 10, 2018 1:16 am


I've completed assembly and testing of the BATC Portsdown transmitter. My version operates on 70 cm (20 W O/P) and 23 cm (5 W O/P) and seems to work very well. Attached are a couple of photo's of the unit. I've also built a Minitouner which also works well and a cheap DVB-S set-top box works well for receiving the 23 cm signals.

The Portsdown project is great and I thank the BATC for the significant effort that has gone into the development and documentation of the project.

I'm looking forward to getting out onto a hill and trying for DX DTV and also future enhancements of the system.!
