Subject: proposed (new) cable delay setup

Mixer will be driven very hard to saturate it. To operate the mixer in the required saturated mode, the RF signal level should be at least:

  • +1 dBm for Standard Level (+7 dBm LO) mixers
  • +7 dBm for Standard Level (+13 dBm LO) mixers
  • +10 dBm for High Level (+17 dBm LO) mixers

so if we use the right (optimum) cable we would have ~8dBm, which should be perfect for a level 13 mixer.

Let's see if we can confirm the calculations...
