Re: RE: Beginner Birds



Not sure about ITU but FCC 97.201 says ...

(c) The following frequency bands and segments are authorized to
space stations:
    (1) The 17 m, 15 m, 12 m, and 10 m bands, 6 mm, 4 mm, 2 mm and 1 mm
bands; and
    (2) The 7.0-7.1 MHz, 14.00-14.25 MHz, 144-146 MHz, 435-438 MHz,
1260-1270 MHz, and 2400-2450 MHz, 3.40-3.41 GHz, 5.83-5.85 GHz, 10.45-
10.50 GHz, and 24.00-24.05 GHz segments.

And 97.3 defines space station as ...

(40) Space station. An amateur station located more than 50 km above
the Earth's surface.

Since we are talking about beginner birds Techs (ie, beginners?) can't work
21/29.  So it might be easy to work, but it wouldn't be a beginner
bird.  Also, there is no bandwidth allocated in any bandplan I could find
for a 15/17m satellite uplink, so that is something else you would have to
overcome.
