Re: 2GB of Free Online Storage

I have used Dropbox for years and both like it and trust it. Like you,
time in service actually means something, especially when you don't hear
bad stories about them.

I already have my DropBox. Works nicely, and is pretty much transparent
on
the PC.

I am a bit wary about so many services who offered 2GB of free online
storage. The ones that were around a few years ago, seem to have gone
away
now. Dropbox has been here for some years and seems to have a decent
reputation among some experts who recommend it for secure online storage.
And it's great for workgroups who share documents (like I do).

Thanks for your note. YES, I only recommend products and services that I know and trust myself, too!

2GB of Free Online Storage

Clint Bradford
 

Get 2GB free and safe online storage (just be sure to use GOOD, non-dictionary-word passwords!) with DropBox! The "cloud" is merely off-site storage - NOT to be afraid of. It is only when one uses their pet's name - or spouses' name - as a password (or ANY plain old word from the dictionary) that hackers can access your data.


Use this link for their free 2GB account. If you use this link, they give me a little more storage space (grin).

Re: EO-80 commissioned?

padmanabhan cattamanchi
 

We still do not have a compehensive website giving us info the ham sats The information given on Amsat is quite old. I did work the Lapan A2 which is in the process of being commisioned for ham use shortly - I got the infor from Facebook for working the Lapan. Seth most of these sats, the ham transponders/repeaters are the secondary payload, after succssfull completion of its primary task it is commissioned for ham use - The same is the case of E0-80 and Lapan - The primary task has not been completed, we will have to wait for some more time. EO-80 was supposed to be released for ham work long ago.

I'm new to HAM radio and working amateur SATCOM, so please excuse me if everyone already knows this, but I saw a new satellite (EO-80) listed under the voice satellites on AMSAT's page. It shows us under commissioning, but the information said it was launched two years ago and that it was supposed to be handed over to AMSAT six months after launch. Is the webpage just not updated? Can we use this satellite yet? Just checking because I couldn't tell how often AMSAT updates their page.

Was able to catch and record this pass using a Kenwood TH-D72a and MFJ Long Ranger antenna. My recording and  a couple of other folks recordings may be found at the following link:

Midwest and east coast opportunity to listen on the 145.800 MHz downlink for
the ISS contact with participants at the Frederick W. Harnett Middle School,
Blackstone, Massachusetts, USA on Tuesday 5 January. AOS is anticipated at
17:42 UTC

The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The
contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and K6DUE in Greenbelt, Maryland.
The contact is expected to be conducted in English.

Audio from this contact will be fed into the:

Final Jepoardy!

Most of you here - and any of the attendees of my 80+ amateur radio satellite presentations - would have been able to answer the Final Jepoardy(tm) question last night!




Re: Freq Drift on AO85

Clint Bradford
 

If you are using frequency charts for AO-85 formerly known as Fox-1A) that were published before November, then please know that things have changed a bit - especially on the uplink.


Current info at AMSAT.org and on the Work-Sat site at ...


AMSAT-NA FUNDRAISING for FOX 1-A. AO-85.


Some are just using VFO modes on their radios ... I still like to program the "set" into my rigs. Either way is working!

Freq Drift on AO85

John K5JRW
 

Hi to Group

Let wish all a Happy New Year


I have not been working FM Sats  for a while, but I have been ready most of the post here.

 I noticed talk about freq. drift, AO-85 how are you compensating for the Drift?

I am using and old Alinco 160 2m, and a Wouxon dual band for receive.

Thanks in advance.

73 and Happy New Year John K5JRW


Re: Wouxun KG-UV9D and AO-85

John <w1xq@...>
 

Clint,
I want to thank you for all this information. It was your webpage that got me to try satellites. I purchased a Icom FT 60R and a arrow antenna back in October and have worked SO 50 and Lilac Sat.  I have enjoyed to experience.

I am waiting today for delivery of the Wouxun KG-UV9D and hope to try my hand at Fox 1A.  I have been hearing it is hard to work with a HT but followed your reviews on various radios and purchased the Wouxon in hopes of being successful.

Again thanks for all the information you impart and giving us, those that enjoy working the birds with a minimal setup, hope and I feel every bit of info you give is imperative in being successful in this setup.

Best 73 and Merry Christmas!
