Re: UO-22 azimuth-only system



 John, you don't even need the crossed yagi to work the PACSATS. I use a
Kenwood D700 with an Arrow antenna, and a Hamtronics preamp to work UO22
portable, with my laptop. I used this setup to upload an image to KO-23
from the AMSAT Symposium several years ago in Maine.
