Subject: POX11 demod board : modification done 

The modification on the POX11 demod board has been successfully done.

I followed the procedure which had been posted in a past entry (#4554).

The home-made splitter was replaced by PSCQ-2-51W, which has a relatively wide band of 5 - 50 MHz.

The usual orthogonality adjustment will be done in the daytime.


 The attached snapshot was taken when an sinusoidal RF signal with a slight frequency offset from LO was injected to the RF input.

It is clear that the I and Q output show healthy signals (i.e. almost the same amplitude and 90 deg phase difference.)


Quote from #5801

I am going to replace the splitter which had been made with a hand-wounded coil because it can work only at a specific tailored frequency.
