|Ready Duplexer. Installed to Nokia Aluminium ladder.|
It have 4 resonators per RX and TX direction.
It is essential to have some sweep analyzer of network analyzer.
capable to sweep 20...70MHz band.
Without analyzer tuning of resonators is quite challange.
With analyzer you can see difference of high and lo quality capacitors and coils
|Circuit diagram of 6 resonator system. principle is same with 8 resonators|
List of materials:
Needed Frequencys: Our case 51.370MHz and 51.970MHz
8 pcs 120cm long 1"5/8 coaxial cable. Thicker cable is also OK
10m of Aircell 7 or RG-214 double shield coaxial cable for resonator interconnections
3m of 7/8" or 1/2" foam isolated coaxial cable. This is used for make high quality capasitors 10...15pF connecting signal to top of resonator
4 pcs high quality N-male connectors for both end of resonator line
1 pcs N-female T adapter for interconnect antenna and RX / TX line of duplexer
4 pcs high quality trimmer capasitors 4...30pF. Used for minimize pass attenuation
4 pcs high quality coils 20...100nH. Used for minimize pass attenuation. Can be find inside 450MHz NMT radio duplexer, for example
Some pieces high quality fixed capasitors to put parallel to trimmer capasitor if needed.
values 30pF 45pF 60pF 80pF for example
|Example of high quality coils and capasitors|
|Homemade capacitor made from 7/8" inner conductor with foam isolation|
|Top of duplexer coils and capacitors are visible|
| 51.970MHz pass -1.52dB|
and notch -90.23dB
|51.370MHz pass -1.79dB|
and notch -90.43dB
