10GHz update

Having replaced the IF RG58 the transverter is now working well.
I get a good signal from GB3PKT at St. Osythe.
I believe I am not on the main lobe from the beacon antenna, so the strength of the signal is moderate. It's probably ideal for propagation monitoring. The amount of rain scatter on the beacon, earlier this afternoon, suggests this will be a useful feature during heavy rain. There was a storm out Essex way. Not much rain hereabouts.
Now to investigate the effect of the two wind generators that that have been installed a few hundred metres east of this QTH!
