Abstract:

An L-band converter was constructed which meets all specifications at low signal levels. The down converter nearly meets all specification at the full 10 mw signal level. Experiments were conducted on an S-band converter similar to the L-band converter. A converter specifically for S-band was designed and is being fabricated. Design work was done and experiments conducted on components necessary to construct an X-band converter. Design work on an X-band converter is proceeding. Improved apparatus for launching the local oscillator and Ka-band signals was fabricated. It is being tested, in conjunction with the high pass filter, to optimize the match, minimize the loss and increase the isolation of the two parts. The high pass filter was modified slightly to improve the local oscillator rejection. A second group of twenty Sylvania D5253 crystals was received and is being evaluated and used. Fifteen klystrons were received. Author
