Description

Details

A high-quality, high-performance, complete LNA & SAW filter module for Inmarsat at a very affordable price.

The module should be powered via low-noise bias-tee which supplies between 3.0V-5.5V. The bias tee must be capable of supplying a minimum of 35mA of current.

As with all other high-frequency applications, we recommend using in conjunction with an SDR specifically designed for long-term, high-frequency performance without degradation, such as the NESDR SMArTee XTR. or a HackRF.

The center frequency of the module is 1.542GHz with approximately 80MHz of bandwidth (-6dB rolloff). As such, it should be used for reception of frequencies between 1.50GHz-1.58GHz.

The LNA is a dual-stage design with a very low noise figure of 1dB (nominal).

4 mounting holes are available on the PCB for various mounting options. The input and output connectors are female SMA.

For Inmarsat, EGC, SafetyNet and JAERO, but Outernet movedReview by WA4OSH

The LNA/SAW filter well for Outernet while the service was still on L-Band using the Inmarsat satellites. At the time, I was using an 8 dBi 3-element patch antenna and an RTL-SDR receiver. Outernet has since moved to the Ku-Band, so this device is no longer applicable for that application.

The LNA may still useful for those wishing to build a receiver for EGC, SafetyNet and JAERO messages.

Perfect LNA with one small demandReview by Bernard

I bought this LNA to receive Inmarsat here in Western Europe, which works very well. Now I've ordered a second one on Amazon to be connected inline to the first. It's a pity that it seems not to work because the 5 Volt of the bias is not switched to the antenna side. (Posted on 6/8/2017)
