Abstract:

This report describes the design and development of the triplexer used in the UHF communications satellite LES-6. The triplexer is a four-port passive microwave structure which provides a common antenna port for simultaneous operation at the transmit, beacon, and receive frequencies, and consists of three-interdigital bandpass filters connected by appropriate lengths of transmission line. A special feature of the transmit filter is its gas- filled hermetically sealed construction, and the details of the mechanical design of the pressure vessel are discussed.
