The primary feature advancement highlights of these new downconverter models include:

  • Frequency coverage ranges at 8 GHz, and new increased 18 GHz and 27 GHz.
  • All models now support software selectable direct conversion and super-heterodyne bandwidth modes.
  • New added pre-select filter banks for all models to mitigate input-related spurs and image responses.
  • New increased bandwidth configuration upgrade option available for all models to 160 MHz (0 Hz IF), 80 MHz (55 MHz IF), and 10 MHz (35 MHz IF).
  • New external local oscillator input upgrade option available for direction finding and multi-channel applications.
  • New accessory options available for rack mounting or wall mounting downconverter units, and new external battery option to operate downconverters from battery source.
