Hi all,

I like to inform you that Martein Bakker, PA3AKE, has updated his web
page reporting his measurement on the H-Mode Mixer. The update is
relative to measurement done on the I7SWX 2T H-Mode Mixer using the
FSA3157 and the original 2T version with Pericom PI5C3125 fast bus

A major comment reported by Martein on the 2T HMM version with
FSA3157 is:

"2 transformer version is an interesting branch in H-Mode mixer
development. Most impressive is the spur reduction possible with home
made transformers with this configuration in combination with the
FSA3157 switches."

PA3AKE web page is: http://www.xs4all.nl/~martein/pa3ake/hmode/

Below is reported the Contents list of all measurements done and
comments reported by Martein. I am sure all those that have visited
and will visit his page will find one of the most complete reports
done on the important H-Mode Mixer developed by Colin Horrabine,

73 and enjoy the reading

Hi All,

For those interested in building an FSA3157 H-Mode mixer, I like to
inform you that Martein, PA3AKE, has added a page to his web-site
with the schematic and PCB layout (Eagle format) for the G3SBI 3T H-
Mode Mixer using the FSA3157. See:
9 – Appendix
o FSA3157 mixer schematic and PCB layout
He has also added the I7SWX 2T H-Mode Mixer schematic to the 2T page.
5 - Homebrew transformers
o BN43-2402 2-Transfomer H-Mode mixer
