29MHz transverter

The popular SDRs that are used to transmit DATV at higher frequencies are the Adlam-pluto and Lime Mini. The pluto does not work below 70MHz and while the Lime Mini does cover 29MHz natively, in practice the spectrum it generates in this region is not sufficiently clean to use on the air. To get round these issues, Mike G0MJW has designed a simple 149 to 29MHz transverter. It is designed to fit into a standard Hammond 1590B 'stompbox' die-cast box.
