1.2GHz looks likely this summer...
I'm going to be putting together one of the setups from here http://www.minikits.com.au/electronic-kits/transverters/23cm-Transverter after speaking to John G4BAO about 1.2GHz at Camb-Hams meetings the drive however will be an SDR not the more usual ricebox. Probably an UHFSDR with a STM32SDR controller. So the whole setup will not require a PC and will be dedicated to 1.2GHz in the first instance.
Seems I have a 18W PA as well so whilst definitely not QRP will still be pretty low power. Also it looks like might have a few island trips this summer (in EU) so hope to activate some squares either side on contests.
