The lady of the house was kind enough to get me a kit for a 2M transverter this year for christmas. Now, for those of you who aren’t familiar with a transverter, it takes a low frequency signal (in this case 28MHz) and mixes it up to another higher frequency (in this case 144MHz). For me, this allows me to use my very nice FT-950 radio, on a frequency band it wasn’t originally designed for.
Anyway, here are some photos I took during assembly of the kit.
This is how the kit comes, immediately showing off the big heatsink that the system uses to keep cool.
Lifting off the heatsink reveals all the packaged components, ready to be assembled into a complete transverter.
Here’s the front and rear panels. The rear one is shown above the front one.
Here’s the inside of the transverter after fully assembling the circuit board, and attaching all the connections to the front and back panels.
This is the completed transverter sitting in a cubby I’ve got below my FT-950.
