That is understandable. I think we can thank him for making a fine product for us to work sats with. Hopefully someone with good business sense will keep it going.

I may have missed it here so please excuse me, but did anyone see the posting in August QST ...
What is it with everyone getting the August QST already? This is the
third email thread I've seen that talks about it. Does the ARRL have
a rolling shipping schedule?

I'm still waiting for my July issue to come! Am I the only one who

I saw the ad... I would imagine if it is purchased, it will continue... if not... well, you could call them and ask...

I may have missed it here so please excuse me, but did anyone see the posting in August QST about Elk Antennas being up for sale? I wonder if someone will buy the business or should we stock up on parts now?

Re: SO-50 and AO-27

HO-68 is a great Sat with a huge footprint but you have to monitor it's schedule at www.camsat.cn. It 's turned off frequently and in other modes (non-FM) frequently. When it's on, and you have the correct gear for the mode, it's amazing. The pass can last for many minutes and sound like your local repeater. It's quite possible to work Europe but they have many of the passes up the Atlantic turned off. Earlier they had Packet and FM on the same schedule and that was terrible with packet noise crashing through the FM constantly. Now it's better segregated and people know to watch that schedule.

Re: SO-50 and AO-27

You are correct!  Make sure you include the PL Tone of 67.0 for SO-50.  AO-27 does not care one way or the other if you have a tone.

Have Fun!

Wow, GREAT WORK on the Web site!

Just a minor point - we're using 67.0 CTCSS on AO-51's uplink again ... SO we all need to edit our frequency charts.

I'll download the audio files and listen later - thanks for the note.

This Wednesday (7July2010) I made an amazing contact on 145.800Mhz. I made contact with the International Space Station, Col. Doug Wheelock, NA1SS, on the ISS. The predicted pass was going over Las Vegas and I started calling CQ when the station was between 10-12 degrees over the horizon. To my amazement, he called back and we had a good conversation over the next several minutes. The Space Station was on an ascending node over LA and they were taking pictures of LA, approaching Las Vegas. I was using the Yaesu VX-8R, and Arrow dual band antenna from my QTH in the back yard. This was my second attempt to contact the ISS, the first being only a day prior. Amazing what an HT and handheld antenna can do.

Re: Doppler shift

K6LCS <clintbrad4d@...>
 

There's a almost 20kHZ Doppler shift on the 440 side of a decent FM sat pass.

But only about 6kHZ variation on the 2M side.

Look at the FILES area here for a chart.

Now, then, if you were working the FM sats with your FT-857 at 100W and had computer-controlled Yagis on the roof, you might compensate a little for Doppler on the uplink, as you would be working much closer to the horizon ...

But for us working with handhelds, the info I have published at ...

http://www.work-sat.com

... is the best-available information.

Clint,

My friends and I have been sucsessfullly working the LEOs with the FT-60 / Arrow combination, mostly with information from your site.

Today I was looking at the instruction book for my FT-857 and the example showed doppler shift frequencies for both the transmit and receive.

I know the importance of doppler shift on the receive frequency, since it gets muddy as the pass goes over, but is there any value in shifting the transmit? What is your take on it?
