6-metre band transverter
Although it has been in use for over ten years in the UK, the 6-metre (50 MHz) band has recently gained a lot of attraction since the PTI authorities of a number of continental European countries including France, Holland, Belgium and Gerrnany have, after a faltering start, issued the first few hundred 6-metre licenses to die-hard home brewers. The author invites you to partake actively in the growing 6-m activity. As shown in the 'specs' box on this page, the present transverter has quite a few distinct advantage over earlier designs that have appeared in the radio amateur press.
