The LNC 8085 C PRO2 converts the HF range of 8 ... 8.5 GHz into the IF range of 200 ... 1300 MHz.

Four LO frequencies 7200/7400/7600/7800 MHz are permanently stored. In addition, you can control your individual IF range with a LO frequency programmable in 10 MHz steps. The possibility of connecting a 10 MHz reference source also makes it possible for the first time to ensure frequency stability for long-term applications.

Two gain levels can be set: In addition to the low gain stage of typ. 37 dB, a high gain stage of typ. 50 dB is integrated especially for Deep Space users.

The robust and weatherproof design stands for the high-quality workmanship of Kuhne electronic.
