This is a Harris Communications Microstar 38GHz Digital Radio tranceiver ODU (out door unit). Unfortunately there isn't a
ham band near this freq. but I suppose it could be doubled to the 76GHz band tho this would be way out of my field of knowledge.
I purchased this brand new (in original packing case) unit off e-bay for just a tiny fraction of its normal sale price mainly to
discover the technology used at such hi frequencies. I was awed at the micro striplines of the 38GHz stages ... truely amazing.
On this page, I would like to tantalise those readers who haven't had the chance to view such technology, with some pics of the unit.
The overall size of the unit is 0.35 metre (~1ft) sqr and .15m (~6") deep. The incorporated flat panel antenna array is fed from
the tranceiver sections by a very short length of waveguide and a very complex divider system (see pics below) that I can't even
begin to understand its operation.
This first pic is an overall view of the inside of the unit with labels on the stages that I can identify.
