Etherkit Si5351a beacon and another used for LO down converter

Today I wanted to see my 144 MHz Arduino / Etherkit Si5351a beacon on a different radio.

To do this was fairly simple.  I used my Apache Labs Hermes SDR by feeding it's RX input from the IF output of a simple Mixer.  I used one of my Arduino / Etherkits as a 120 MHz LO.  And the other Adruino / Etherkit as a 144 MHz (2 meter) CW Beacon.

Here's how that went.
