60 m band

As a result of a request from VERON ("Vereniging voor Experimenteel Radio Onderzoek Nederland") to "Agentschap Telecom", in the Netherlands there is a chance that part of the 60 m band (5250 - 5450 kHz) comes available for experiments in the near future. This band, located between 40 and 80 m, is very interesting to do (QRP) experiments.
Although the operating frequency is below 10 MHz, the common voice mode used in the 5 MHz band is USB.

In advance of the release of the bandsegment I thought about a 5 MHz transverter. When using a 21 MHz transceiver, with a 16 MHz local oscillator, a transverter could look similar to the design shown below.


  1. Hallo Ron, kan ik alvast een sked met je maken? Ik heb (had) al de mogelijkheid om op die band uit te komen. Zelfs mijn antenne is er geschikt voor. Nu nog wachten op toestemming. 73, Bas

  2. Haha, eerst een transverter in elkaar knutselen :-)

  3. Welke transceiver kan dat trouwens ??
