Depending on one's objectives, the Ukrainian 222 transverters are only about 
$100, and when properly adjusted they provide decent signal quality.  If you 
luck out and find a DEMI one for cheap ("only" 2-3x as much, uaed) then by all 
means go that route, but if you want something new, functional, and cheap, 
without waiting for exactly the right deal to come along, this might be worth 
some thought.  I've been using one for the last few weeks on the Tuesday event 
night, and it seems fairly effective.

I've been looking for a DEMI one to compare it with (see above re: "waiting for 
the right deal to come along") but it's better than nothing, even for your 
other colleagues on the band.  You could maybe even have it in time for the 
sprint next Tuesday. :)
