Ham radio satellites (AMSAT)
« on: June 18, 2019, 1832 UTC »
Anyone here work any of the Ham Sats, FM, SSB or CW? Thanks
Listening on an Icom-718 with a 135' OCF dipole or a RSP2.  Grundig G3 and MLA-30 when portable. When QRP I use a Hendricks PFR-3 I built. Coverage is 20,30 and 40 meters.

I hear the one that whizzes by every once in a while that can be hit with an dual band ht. It comes in, a few dozen calls are heard for a few seconds as HAMs scream into their mics, and then off the bird goes.
