13CM SGlabs + 55W PA

Post by VK2BLS » Tue Oct 13, 2020 8:42 pm

Hi all,

Just boxed up my spare 13CM SGLabs tvrtr with a newly acquired (Ebay) 55W Khune PA.
My other 13CM unit is working into a Spectrian (Pyro Joe type) 25W PA.
Starting to see more activity on 23/13/9 from Sydney which is great.

Nice work Darrell.
I enjoy our 23/13/9cm contacts.

When are you building the 10GHz station :-)

Hi Scott,

Xlnt review on IC-705, nice rig.
SGLabs Tvrtrs are brilliant, especially for $$$. Makes easy path onto 23/13/9

Hilary is there an easy path onto 10Ghz? (easy also = low $$$)

A real easy path onto 10GHz is the W1GHZ series of transverters. Search for W1GHZ or check out my QRZ page. $$$easy comparable to SG labs but you have to build the boards and supply enclosure etc.

Finally after ~6mths the order from SG-Labs arrived two weeks ago... made quick progress over the last two weekends and it's now built and tested including a Stealth amp.
