Re: [linrad] For general interest

I was somewhat concerned about the noise figure myself but I don't 
know how this device compares with other techniques and products on 
the questions of noise or leakage.  The SKY data doesn't mention 
leakage and the data I have on Mini-circuit mixers doesn't mention 
noise.  Neither am I sure how to interpret the SKY noise 
specification stated as a SSB Noise figure in dB. I plan to obtain 
more info.

As I am interested in HF,  noise requirements are more relaxed than 
for higher frequencies and large signal issues seem more important.

I understand that the chip is priced at $9.95 in 500 unit quantity 
and I am trying to find out what they would cost in the 1-10 range.
