2.4 GHz Signal source

Sure is;
Find a handheld radio that you are certain is on frequency, calculate
which harmonic would fall in the passband of your downconvertor and
transmit on the corresponing fundamental. ( To get a clean beat note, be
sure to turn of the CTCSS tone encoder) In my case, I used a modified
Standard C508 tuned in the 400 MHz range (6 th harmonic). I also found I
could receive my 13cm TX with the same radio by tuning an image
