14.0 to 14.5 GHz Tx optional (available ≤ 80 watt)
10.95 to 12.75 GHz Rx with wide band LNA (KST- 2000A)
10.95 to 11.70 GHz, 11.70 to 12.20 GHz or 12.25 to 12.75 GHz Rx (KST-2000B)
70 or 140 MHz IF input/output
Transmit only option available

A KST-2000A/B consists of three distinct functional areas:

Converter
The converter portion of the system controls external SSPAs. The converter unit is a convection cooled, up/down converter with an internal power supply and microprocessor-based Monitor and Control (M&C).

Receive Options
The KST-2000A model includes a Low Noise Amplifier (LNA), while the KST-2000B offers a choice of Low Noise Block converters (LNB). Both the LNA and LNB are feedmounted with or without a Transmit Reject Filter (TRF).

Power Amplifier
Power amplifiers are available in a selection of output capabilities. Automatic Gain Control (AGC) provides power output stability for 40 Watts or less.

Applications
The KST-2000A, with its wide band receiver, is ideally suited for the following mobile/transportable applications:
Satellite News Gathering (SNG)
Very Small Aperture Terminals (VSATs)
Flyaway Terminals

The lower-cost KST-2000B offers a choice of LNBs for its receive band, making it ideal for fixed station uses:
Rural Telephony
Network Hub Stations
Network Remote Sites
