Re: [linrad] RE: H mode mixers at 144 MHz

Hi Roger,

Thanks for the very interesting post.
I wonder if there is any website of Giancarlo I7SWX and/or G3SBI?
I have searched in Mr. Google but couldn't reach anywhere.

Who gave the name of "H-Mode Mixer"?
Do you or Giancarlo know of any good webpage to learn H-Mode Mixer?
