You calculate the pass and then tap on the summary data of the pass.

The app is W1ANT Pro (for Android) -

It works great to predict the passes. The pro version allows you to select only the satellites you want. Also has all the basic info. The screen in the picture assists in the azimuth and elevation. It's on the "C" handle so that I center the yellow dot for elevation and the green for direction. Also computes the Doppler shift.

Re: How important is it to have a full duplex ht

Paul AC9O
 

I am new to satellites, less than a month. And having a blast!

Most definitely full duplex. I started with a TH-D72 and a headset. It worked great but had a tough time recording sessions on my smart phone. It can be done as the smart phone hear me very well, and can actually pick up the downlink audio enough to hear. the problem is with external noises, neighbors, cars, etc. can mask the receive audio. I didn't want to patch in another recorder, so I lived with it.

I then took my other ht, a FT3DR and use that now on the downlink. It has built-in recording so it works great to enter logs after the session.

Here's a pic of my setup with an Arrow mounted to a camera "C" handle with the HTs on either side. Very comfy to hold and control....

Want to get in to the world of high gain for your HT with MINIMUM cash outlay?

Well, got an old, un-used steel tape measure in the back of your junk drawer? Or how about that broken umbrella in the front closet? Or out in the back yard in the scrap heap: any pieces of barbed wire?

Re: IC-9700 full duplex for Sats using preamps?

Stefan Wagener
 

It's very simple. The IC-9700 powers external  preamps via 12V on the respective feed line. If you TX on 2m, the internal sequencer will shut off the 2m preamp on the 2m feed line while the 70 cm preamp is still working while still powered on the 70 cm feed line and vice versa. This has been the case with IC-9100, the IC-910 and so on. The TS-2000 never had that option. One of the biggest faults in my mind. You had to buy/use an external sequencer and power inserter for each band.

IC-9700 full duplex for Sats using preamps?

mchenryproj
 

I haven't searched totally everywhere but there doesn't seem to be any real explanation of how the preamp situation works with the IC-9700.  I had a Kenwood TS-2000X that had a separate PTT closure for each band. You could wire a traditional Preamp with small relays or switching transistors to 12vdc for each band and when the PTT was closed on the TX band it would kill the preamp and/or switch to the TX port of the relay as per normal but it would leave power to the other unaffected non -TXing band.  The thing is, if one is doing satellite work using preamps on all bands on the IC-9700, with only one PTT closure it would kill the RX preamp when TX on 2m making it rather hard to hear on 432 right?

How are folks utilizing preamps on each band with the IC-9700 when doing duplex, like with satellites?

 I just ordered the book about the 9700 from Amazon tonight hoping some of this will be covered.

(I also posted this question on the IC-9700 group)
