I am looking for information for the beginner on tx and aprs through
Sats. Any suggestions on where to look? Need the very basic first
steps. I am doing great on 2meter land base now want to expand.

Take a look at the ARRL website, you should be able to find some good information there. www.arrl.net.
Also, the AMSAT-NA site has loads of good info on most of the birds, take a look there. www.amsat.org.
There is an article in the newest QST magazine that lays out some simple operating procedures on UO-14, and has some info on SO-35 as well. I highly recommend that article. I’ve had pretty good luck with SO-35, and not so good with UO-14.
I would suggest starting with SO-35. It’s a pretty easy bird to work, so the frustration level will be a little lower. Good satellite to cut your teeth on (I’m still in that mode myself). The best place to go for SO-35 info is the SunSat web page. http://sunsat.ee.sun.ac.za/index.html. You’ll find some pretty detailed operating instructions there, as well as the voice pass schedule.
