Re: AO-91 signal?

Some programs let the user see the past ... But I think it might have been that other 
project's signal you heard.

AO-91 signal?

Hank Tyler
 

Was this satellite also above you? http://www.maxvaliersat.it/amateurradio

>> I tried following AO-91 a short time ago and this is the signal I saw on my waterfall. It's obviously not a voice signal. What is it and what is it's mode?



Thanks!

I also have one ,V71a,in the garage on shelf. I might give this a shot. I plan on setting up two HT’s and monitor that way. I was thinking the duplexes might be bad, but trying to think, head hurts now 😳. Probably something simple.

Hello all,

I have collected weather imagery from the NOAA weather satellites a number of times now yes the low resolution APT signal they transmit on the 137 megahertz band, but I like to step it up a notch and try for the high resolution HRPT signal instead. I have a HackRF One that should be able to do it with the right antennas. It's on the 1.7 gigahertz band and requires about 3 megahertz of bandwidth. Had anyone done this and what antenna did you use?

I was looking at maybe making this cloverleaf:

Also, does anyone know if the Meteor M2 LRPT signal is transmitted over North America? It might be an easier stepping stone.

The id51 has an SD card and can record audio on the main band.

Thanks all for your suggestions. This morning Clint’s page wouldn’t load. Just now at 5:37 PDT it loaded just fine. I can only guess electron collision. At least I didn’t let the smoke out.

Hi Clint. I enjoy all the topics via my client email. Thanks for all your work helping folks learn how to work Sats.

Topic is regarding my inability to access your webpage either via email link or web search to k6lcs dot com. it won't load. Using Mac Safari 13. OS 10.13. Ideas ? Can't access the work-sat dot com either. Other webpages load OK including this one. Anyone else having difficulty ?

I have to be doing something wrong

WA6ES@...
 

So far I have heard 6 passes pretty clear and made one contact. Using an arrow antenna and using the frequencies on the web site. I made the contact on SO-50. I wait until I hear calling. I transmit my call and location and wait, nothing and try it again until the Sat passes. I will keep trying but am I missing something

Thanks

Built one almost exactly like urs a few years ago and never really used it. Getting organizeed for another go at fm sats.
