The complete high performance 472 to 479kHz ( 630m Band ) Transverter Kit makes it very easy to get onto the 630m band especially with weak signal digital modes, but being linear it will work with all modes including SSB if it is allowed in your country. Construction takes around 6 hours to fully built and test. The Transverter is designed as a transmit down, and a receive up converter, with a fixed frequency range of 472 to 479kHz, and produces up to 5 Watts of linear output when used with a suitable low power < 5 Watt Yaesu FT817 or similar 3.6MHz 80M Band Transceiver. The design incorporates a 500kHz low pass filter that is used on the receiver for broadcast band rejection, and on transmit as a low pass filter to effectively reject the second and 3rd harmonics. There is further filtering in both the RX and TX paths using a tuned 472 to 479kHz band pass filter to effectively remove remaining out of band signals. The design incorporates a RF sensing circuit for automatic switching from RX to TX mode. Most components are conventional leaded types, but a few SMD components are used as they were more readily available.
THIS KIT IS IDEAL FOR MOST CONSTRUCTORS BUT HAS A FEW SMD COMPONENTS THAT REQUIRES EXPERIENCED SOLDERING SKILLS
