2N2/6 Transverter Information

This project is a 40 meter to 6 meter CW "no tune" transverter using ten 2N2222 transistors and one 2N2907. The transverter requires 2 watts of drive from a 40 meter cw transceiver and outputs 2 watts on 6 meters. On receive, it uses the 40 meter rig as the intermediate frequency amplifier. Its receive sensitivity is approximately 0.5 microvolts. Transmit spurious outputs are less than -50 dBc, meeting FCC spectral purity at a 2 watt power level. All transmit/receive switching is solid state.

This transverter design was presented at the Pacificon QRP symposium in early October 1999, at Atlanticon 2000 in March, and at FDIM 2000 in mid-May. It was also the topic of a full blown construction article in the 1999 Winter Issue of QRPp published by NorCal. You can follow the 2N2/6 links to see much of the design information on this transverter along with additional pictures that were not able to be published in the QRPp article.
