47 GHz Equipment and Techniques
Page last modified 25 November 2003
This page links to articles and descriptions of techniques for the 47 GHz
radio frequency band. The U.S. 47 GHz (6 millimeter) band limits
are from 47.000
to 47.200 GHz, a bandwidth of just 200 MHz.
Block Diagram of the approaches used by N6IZW with the harmonic
described above for initial contacts using cw and ssb modes. In Adobe Acrobat
47 GHz Waveguide Harmonic Mixers. A set of slides describing
amateur's experiments with improved harmonic mixers. Use of hobby
as waveguide suppresses the 23.5 GHz driving frequency.
Results to date include
ssb contacts out to 18.3 miles. The diodes used
were salvaged from scrap Qualcomm
modules. Slides by Don Nelson,
N0UGY with Bill McCaa, K0RZ and Phil Lee, W6HCC.
