Frequency ranges for 2/4 Gbps

    Table of contents

    4 Gbps frequency status

    Please enter here your receivers with their frequency ranges. Please keep this table up to date!:

    • At which sky frequency (or frequency ranges) can your telescope reach 2*512 MHz (dual polarisation)?
    • Which IF output can your telescope provide? For example IF: 500-1000
    • What limits on LO tunability  do exist?

    Ranges in GHz, widths in MHz; in cells: top - width, middle - range, bottom - LO tunability
