Good Morning, All.

And thank you to Jon (W0ZQ) for his referral to your group.

This is Zoltan (KD8ABX), from Ann Arbor, MI, and I am a newcomer to NLRS as
well as to 10 GHz microwave work and have a few questions regarding 10 GHz
equipment that I would like to ask, but I do not know who or how to go
about asking the questions; hence, this message.

I am collaborating on this project with Peter Szilagyi (VE3ADQ), who
suggested that I consider asking around at the NLRS, which brings me to
this email message.

Would you please steer me in the right direction?

I have been building and experimenting with TVRO LNBFs, WSSs, etc. over the
past six months and have built simple coaxial transitions to WR90 and will
start building a W1GHZ personal beacon and transverter shortly. Afterwards,
I expect to upgrade my system to Kuhne MKU5G, assuming that I can locate

My 10 GHz interests lay primarily in rain scatter work, although Peter
(VE3ADQ) and I are already making plans to contest around Lake Superior
this summer with the NLRS folks.

Specifically, I am wondering about other 10 GHz operators in the club who
have experience with Kuhne Electronics MKU10G5 (or earlier versions)
vis-a-vis its interface with external power amplifiers, coax relays and
sequencers. I have watched many videos by 10 GHz operators and have zoomed
into and stared at countless images of the internals of 10 GHz rigs and now
feel competent enough to start asking basic questions.

My apologies for the long-winded message and I look forward to hearing back
from you.

Thank you very much and good day,


Zoltan (KD8ABX)
