950-1750 MHz converter
An inexpensive tuner module obtained in the electronics surplus trade allows anyone who has successfully built the VHF/UHF receiver (described a few months aga) to listen to signals in the ether above 900 MHz. This brings you, among others, the complete 23-cm amateur radio band, the future 900- MHz CB band, car telephone repeaters and short-range cordless telephones. A mini-discone antenna with a built-in wideband preamplifier designed for the SHF band is also described.
