Used one of that ukrainian transverter for 2m for a while.
It is not a highend device for sure..
But I connected that to my ts-480, had an output of 10-12W which was enough for repeater communication.
Then I added a 150W PA to it..
And made hundreds of Meteor Scatter qsos..
And , my first EME contact with I2FAK, with my single 10 element yagi by using this transverter + PA
Yes it has problems.. Lost internal amplifier (BF998 i suppose) a few times..
And the output transistor, 2 times..(which is cheap anyway) . And for any trouble, they replied very quick to diagnose the problem.
And there is no way to disable the internal LNA to use an external LNA if needed..So, an external LNA just saturates it..
I dont know if it has any updates on design lately..
But it works ....
