Use with any HF rig
The XV transverters can be used with nearly any transceiver that covers the 28 to 30 MHz frequency range, including Elecraft's high-performance K3S, K3, K2. Single-port and dual-port IF connections work with almost any transceiver interface. IF transmit levels from -20 dBm to +39 dBm (.01 mW to 8 W) can be accommodated, with a constant-impedance IF termination for top performance. Reliable overload detection is included at the IF port to protect the mixer. Multiple transverters can be daisy-chained to a single IF transceiver, providing multi-band operation without cable rearrangement. A brightly-illuminated label clearly identifies which transverter is selected. There is also an auxiliary BNC connector on the rear panel that can be wired for a RX-only path at the XV output for split TX/RX antenna paths.
Easy to Build, Understand and Repair
Like Elecraft's transceivers, the XV Series transverters are completely modular, simplifying construction and alignment. The professionally-written, fully-illustrated manual will appeal to experienced as well as first-time builders. The kits are easy to assemble, featuring our "no-wires" construction, and all surface-mount parts used in the kit are preinstalled at the factory. Comprehensive Assembly and User Manual Our illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions include modular assembly and check out of each stage. Extensive theory of operation and troubleshooting sections are also provided.
The XV144 is packaged in a sleek, stackable, 1.2" tall enclosure.
A: Yes. However, we do have builders for hire. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
A: For maximum stability, consider adding the high stability oven for CW, SSB/phone or digital modes. It will not be needed for FM operation.
A: Yes. The XV series of transverters are quite flexible for connections to most any transceiver that can operate in the 10 Meter band.
