Magnus you are right.
Its interesting in that several parts are easily available at
Mini- circuits has a all in one synthesizer module dsn-2036 for the LO and
they also have very nice IF filters. The BPF-a76 appears to be exactly the
right bandwidth for a GPS IF.
There are some things to work through but they seem reasonable.
