      The UHFSDR does not use an H mode mixer(at least if I understand what
      an H mode mixer is). The UHFSDR uses 2 standard double balanced mixers.
      The DBM's have about 6 dB of loss verses 1dB or less for the QSD.
      But, DBM's are available for frequencies well into the tens of GHz. It
      uses a quadrature LO as do all the other SDR's.
