Re: Wohoo! :) (Was Mobile/Portable Satellite Operations).



Hi John, 
Yes, it is very possible and very easy that way. Remember it really isn't neccesary to tune the uplink on FM mode J birds. The satellite receiver front end is plenty wide enough to overcome the 3khz of doppler ther

Congrats on your first contacts. Try some low western passes if you have a good horizon and you should be able to work VE and stateside. EI is still a fairly rare country on satellite over here...

I'm not sure if they are on here, but many thanks to ON5MY (My first  
Satellite contact, so I hope the call is correct), OZ1MY, and PD5DJ.   
What a blast, though I forgot to log/change frequency at various  
times. It that was great, 2.5Watts from the handheld, SO-50, Orbit  
1500 at approximately 19:20 UTC.

Question, seeing as I'm all over the place trying to tune/log etc...  
would it be possible to uplink using a mobile radio in the car say,  
and use the arrow for receive of the downlink?

Many thanks for all the replies I received...

That was great fun!

Regards
de John
