|Designed to replace the crystal oscillator
LO chains for microwave receivers and transmitters for the 1296 MHz band. Now there is
an alternative to those unstable high frequency crystal oscillators which drift constantly,
allowing precise receiver/transmitter frequency settings using a stable external 10 MHz or
100 MHz reference oscillator like a TCXO, Oven Controlled Oscillator or a Rubidium Oscillator.
The Model 1152 outputs a single ultra low noise 1152 MHz signal. With a minimum of +17 dBm of output
power, the Model 1152-ALN is perfect for driving 3-dB power spliiters, high level mixers and power
amplifier stages. The ultra low noise performance of the Model 1152-ALN begins to approach crystal
oscillator phase noise performance. This allows the Model 1152-ALN to be used for such things as
EME communications, long-haul low noise communications and digital operations like JT65 and similar
modes. With both end of a communications link using a Model 1152-ALN, both stations will be absolutly
on the same frequency when locked to a 10 MHz GPS disiplined oscillator reference. No more hunting
around the dial for the other operator.
