Just a Little IF Padding

My 902 MHz transverter board is stuffed and ready to check out. But first, I need an appropriate IF signal.

I have a 2 meter HT that can be dialed down to 20 mW (13 dBm) on its lowest power setting. That's within spittin' distance of the 0 dBm that I need. So I built an attenuator pad that's adjustable from 10-13 dB of attenuation. Perfect!

It seems like I'm awfully close to getting some 902 MHz RF out of my first homebrewed transverter. Maybe tomorrow.......
