Subject: putting together a 110 MHz LSC demod board 

I started to look into putting together a 110 MHz demod board to be used as POP110 (see #8399).

We have five spare old-skool EuroCard demod boards (LIGO-D990511).  From what I gather (see #4538, #4708) there are two modifications we do to these boards to make them ready for prime time:

  • appropriate LP filter at PD RF input (U5 -> MC SCLF-*)
  • swap out T1 transformer network with a commercial phase shifting power splitter (MC PQW/PSCQ)

#4538 also describes some other modifications but I'm not sure if those were actually implemented or not:

  • removal of the attenuator/DC block/ERA-5 amp sections at the I/Q outputs
  • swap ERA-5 amp with "Cougar"(?) amp at LO input.

What we'll need for a 110 demod:

I'll scrounge or order.
