3456MHz multiplier


 


This module uses the RF amplifier sections from two modified Grundig AUN 12S LNB assemblies. The first runs as a x3 multiplier using an overdriven amplifier at 3456 MHz, and feeds a two section waveguide filter tuned to 10 368 MHz. The second LNB unit follows the filter, and only uses one stage of amplification  providing about 10 dB of gain, resulting in an output of about 15 dBm.
