I use a SIGNALINK USB  interface to connect between my FTM-400 and my computer. Works great with MMSSTV, FLDIGI, Easypal, Winlink, etc. Can't be much better than that...

I used to have a Chiro Programming file for all the FM and SSB satellites. Can you help me?

Heil Sound - "B" Stock Site

Clint Bradford
 

Heil Sound offers mic "blems" at reduced prices ... sonically perfect, just 
cosmetic "problems," I have been told.

Several mics available! https://heil-sound-ltd.myshopify.com/collections/b-stock

But if you're looking for a PR40, know that HRO has a super-sale on them 
this month for $280!

I have used both on my 72 and I like the double side headset better because it blocks out unwanted noises happening around me.

$33 at HRO ...

But for free shipping, you need to spend $67 more ... maybe we be of these ZumSpot devices, perhaps???

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)

Re: Mode Question

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?

Re: Mode Question

Greg
 

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

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 heard 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

Clint:

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.

Re: Mode Question

Brad-

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!

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.
