Hmmm ... wonder what they did - “HAM radio troubleshooting” listed as a scheduled activity aboard the ISS -

A couple errors in the June, 2019 Field Day satellite frequency chart ... Stick with what has already been published - like at http://www.work-sat.com

Re: Mode Question

Thank you David. I see by the operating schedule that it isn't or use to us in North America.

You probably know this, but I'll throw it out there for others that might not. I tend to look at two pages on the AMSAT site:
Current Status Page - https://www.amsat.org/status/
Communications Satellite List - https://www.amsat.org/two-way-satellites/

On the second page you'll see that it says, "Active by schedule, see here for schedule updates" next to PO-101. If you go to that page, it shows you all the info you'll need including contact info.

Good luck!

PO-101 is supposed to be a ham radio satellite, but there seems to be no signal from it. Is it usable for us? If so, how do we use it? Thanks.

The AMSAT Status page that Clint sent you to is excellent. I also go to this page which gives you a quick listing of all the birds by category with links to specific information:

Also, this link:  https://www.amsat.org/linear-satellite-frequency-summary/  is excellent for the transponder birds.

Well, http://www.work-sat.com will always have the "easiest" FM voice birds' info for you.

And a link with info to start working SSB birds is ...

http://www.work-sat.com/SSB_CITES.html

To see what others are working successfully (and what is NOT working!), use the Live OSCAR Status Page - and click on the satellite names for more info -

https://www.amsat.org/status/

Diwasat PO-101 is up there ... last time I hears it was late April ... not an "easy" bird to access ...

AO-7 is being worked! Watch that Status Page - 

Mode U/V (B) Linear Transponder (Inverting):
Uplink: 432.1250 – 432.1750 MHz SSB/CW
Downlink 145.9750 – 145.9250 MHz SSB/CW

Is there any one source that lists current or active satellites AND  maybe correct frequencies?

Is PO-101 a ham radio satellite that is available to us? I didn't hear a thing on it today.

Is AO-7 still a usable satellite and how can one work it?

Good point. Maybe I should start using my Heil Traveler dual-sided one: I have been accused of sometimes paying more attention to questions from bystanders than to the pass-at-hand ... (g)
