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/toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
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.
