My current setup to operate ES'hail & QO-100.

My previously used pre-amplifier (the one in front of the final PA) only delivers a gain of abt. 9dB @2.4GHz. This was far too less for my final PA used.

I found this amplifier on AliExpress. It delivers a solid gain:

The performance matches excellent to the given gain of Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein! n the sellers spec. 

With this new pre-amplifier I now get 2W@2,4GHz to the dish - the QSOs have to show :-)

 

 

I received a new WLAN grid antenna from a fellow Ham - thanks for this!

To protect the fragile LimeSDR mini PCB I placed the SDR inside an aluminium case.
