The easysats paper does have one major omission, due to the date it was
written, and that omission is Sunsat (SO-35), which is another FM bird, and
probably the easiest satellite of them all.  A dual band handheld will get you
into this bird most of the time.

Sunsat carries an FM repeater which is activated according to a schedule which
is advertised (currently, the best place to find out is to watch this mailing

The frequencies are:

Uplink - 436.291 MHz (+/- 10 kHz Doppler)
Downlink - 145.825 MHz.

I have only used portable gear to work SO-35, and have managed QSOs from trains
and trams (streetcars).
