Sound clip from 2.3 GHz Beacon
Stockholm area. The frequency shift in the middle of the clip is that I come in contact with the VFO-knob. Sorry!
Both transverters uses 144 MHz as intermediate frequency (IF) and max input power is 3 watts.
The T/R-switching is controlled by a sequencer that is trigged by closure to ground.
They are both design for 12 Volts DC.
