Yet another view of the 10 GHz gunn transceiver.
John, K7JL, used a commercially-made 10 GHz transceiver, the venerable TR10GA made by ARR.  This unit is a self-contained 10 GHz FM transceiver with built-in 30 MHz IF receiver, capable of both wide (300 KHz) and (optional) narrowband (45 KHz) operation with AFC and it has the option of being able to separate the 10 GHz RF unit from the rest of the radio.
John operated from his roof in Sandy during the contest.  Unfortunately, he has only the one tripod, so he wasn't able to take a picture of himself on his roof.
Occasionally, these units may be found second-hand for a reasonable price (as John did.)
This receiver has been modified to include a narrowband (45 KHz) filter - normally an extra-cost option:  This filter was removed from a scrapped satellite demodulator.
