The internal LO frequency is 1.7 GHz (upper sideband).
Generally, the lower sideband was a few decibels higher than the upper sideband. Upconversion gain was measured while both the RF and LO signals were swept simultaneously to give upconversion gain as a function of RF output frequency with a fixed IF input frequency as shown in Figure 8.
