Re: Beacon On FO-20 ?



I worked FO-20 yesterday, and asked another station about the beacon. He told me
that FO-20's beacon had died some time back. He also told me that FO-20's
batteries are dead/failed and that FO-20 only works in sunlight.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Beacon On FO-20 ?


I am reasonably new to the world of Amateur Satellites.  I have worked both
UO-14 and RS-13 with success.  I now want to try FO-20.

With RS-13 and it's beacon its easy to use this as a judgment to see how
well I am hearing the unit which then helps me decide if it's worth while
trying to work through.  With UO-14 I use the FM carrier to achieve the same
result.

In documentation I have read to date, it appears that FO-20 does not have a
beacon - is this correct ?

Seeing FO-20 is linear but it's signals are inverted, does this mean if I
was to transmit on say 145.920 LSB then I would need to listen for my sigs
somewhere in the area of 435.820 USB +/-  ?
