State-of-the-art QO-100 full-duplex transverter system

The LE016-R5 is a small transverter system that can be used to communicate via the QO-100 geo-stationary amateur satellite with use of a standard VHF/UHF transceiver radio.

More information about this satellite can be found at:

The LE016-R5 transverter system uses state-off-the-art electronics giving it a small form factor. The system is very flexible and can be set up in a matter of minutes. Due to its small form factor and wide supply range it is very useful as emergency communication device or as a backup radio system in remote areas.

The easy operation off this device makes it very valuable for educational purposes as well, where junior operators (under guidance of an licenced operator) can get in touch with satellite- and microwave communication systems at an early stage in their career.
