Re: Made first satellite contact today

I am planning on trying out the plan for the arrow clone half way down this page http://www.dxzone.com/catalog/Antennas/Satellite/
I think I'll wait on getting a diplexer, so I'll use 2 seperate cables for 2m and 70cm. Plus I like to do a little RDF and I dont have a 2m yagi yet so it can serve a dual purpose.
I want to try and make it pretty lightweight so I am looking at hollow aluminum elements and a wooden boom.
If anybody has ideas or information on their own satellite antennas, I would love to take a look.
I also am reading up about packet radio and I'd like to try to send some messages to the ISS at some point.

Way to go, Brian!

Which Yagi are you building?

I enjoyed your group ... I am getting ready to give the
show at the AQMD office tonight at 6. We will try working
AO-51 at 5:40pm to the West.
