Re: AO-7 reception



You should have a good chance with that setup if you can point it and don't have too much feedline loss. Listen around 145.950 for users. You may also hear other "noise" coming from the satellite across the passband. The beacon is around 972 but I've found it isn't on consistently. Make sure the footprint intersects some sunlit area of the earth. This means the sat is in sunlight, and will have power. 

Good Luck!

Subject: [amsat-bb] AO-7 reception 

Hi all,

I'd like to give listening to AO-7 a shot.  I have a IC-290A (all mode 
2m) and a 3 ele 2m beam.  Do I have a chance?
How necessary is it to have a 2m preamp?  Lastly, what techinque would 
some of the more experieced operators reccommend?

Thanks and 73s,
David Carr
