RX2 Kit

The RX2 is one excellent APT receiver that does as good as most commercial units do.

My First pictures  from  RX2  kit on 2/6/1999   from NOAA 12, Goes 8  and Resurs (No longer in operation)  using the RX2  receiver. 

 Pictures shown below are a visual meant as a guide only please follow directions provided with Kit.

        RX2done1.jpg (50402 bytes)  Testing stages over for now,  RX2 coils   L1, L2, L3, L4 and L5 were adjusted by  using Volt meter and Signal meter  instead up using a Frequency meter with a counter.
