C-Band DRO LNB teardown

Posted on Tuesday, November 27th, 2012 in RF, Teardowns by the machinegeek


Sebastian, amateur radio operator KF5OBS, offers up this under the hood look at a C-Band DRO LNB. “A low-noise block downconverter (LNB) is a key element in a satellite receiver system and is responsible for converting the relatively high frequency of the received signal into the more convenient L-Band. But how do they work and what do they look like on the inside? Let’s have a look!”

    The URL is broken and should be: http://jaunty-electronics.com/blog/2012/09/c-band-dro-lnb-teardown/

    Also, please change “[…] amateur radio operation KF5OBS […]” to “[…] amateur radio operator KF5OBS […]”

    Thanks a lot.
