Re: Es Hail 2 LNB Antidrift
I am presently modifying another LNB and will lock it to a GSPDO or Rubidum (both are available here).
What I do not understand in the approach from Loetlabor Jena is why they still stick to the 27 MHz reference.
I have 10 MHz to 26,03076923 MHz PLL converter built by DF9NP for me which I will use.
This moves the IF band higher and normal SAT-RX can be used and also most SDRs for narrowband.

Hello Matthias 73.
Did you check RF filter response too ?
DL3YC modification, LNB fully locked on GPS.

As you have requested here is a spectrum sweep of a unmodified dual Octagon PLL LNB. LO was 9750 Mhz.
As you can see the gain at 600 MHz drops by about 5dB (roughly).
I assume this is the frequency response of the IF chain and as the LNB has plenty of gain I don’t think it is a real problem.
It is different if the frequency response (high pass characteristic) is based on the amplifiers in front of the mixer as then total system noise figure should be impacted.
Nevertheless I changed the reference of my LNB to move the IF signals up above 1 GHz and also use a TCXO.
Here is a description of the modification I made:
The best solution for SSB is DL3YC idea.
You could see on his blog. Its the optimal one.
In all cases your 0,5 ppm TCXO's or crystals will be under the GPS signal in all cases.
Without modification of LNB, you will lost IF gain too, if not, lets share a spectrum capture.
Warm 73, no fight, just discuss. Laurent.
