Microwave Service Company has launched a line of block downconverters for use at UHF as well as from 2.0 to 2.7 GHz. The block downconverters are designed to convert digital COFDM and analog transmissions to their respective intermediate-frequency (IF) ranges. The single-conversion units feature a low-noise amplifier and ceramic filter that combine for 24 dB gain with 3.5 dB noise figure. DC power can be supplied locally or remotely via coaxial cable to the IF output to both versions. The company also announced aluminum, o-ring-sealed weather-proof enclosures for the block downconverters.
