Model 2160-ALN Phase Locked Oscillator

Designed to replace the crystal oscillator LO chain in a 2304MHz Transverter unit, the Model 2160-ALN provides superior low noise performance almost equaling the Phase Noise performance of a crystal oscillator/multiplier chain.

Now there is an alternative to the unstable crystal oscillator chain that drifts constantly. The Model 2160-ALN allows precise receiver/transmitter frequency control using a stable external 10 MHz or 100 MHz reference oscillator like a TCXO, Oven Controlled Oscillator or a Rubidium Oscillator.

The Model 2160-ALN outputs a single ultra low noise 2160 MHz signal. With a minimum of +17 dBm of output power, the oscillator is perfect for driving 3-dB power spliiters, multipliers and power amplifier stages. The ultra low noise performance of the Model 2160-ALN begins to approach crystal oscillator phase noise performance. This allows the unit 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 2160-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 station.
