OSCAR-13 Mode-S User List ( Update 15 september 2006 )



Hi , All

Here is the last update 15 Sept 2006 of OSCAR-13 Mode-S 
user list.  

Just for record i have included a list of  OSCAR-13 operators 
with their call letters and antennas used for downlink Mode-S 
from 2400.711 to 2400.747 MHz during the lifetime
of this glourious  U/S transponder
 
The power of OSCAR-13  mode-S was only 1,5 W pep and the 
satellite antenna was an helix with G=10 dBi and so EIRP=15 W 
pep

In comparison the power of  S1 TX  on AO40 was 50 W
pep and the antenna was an helix with G=10 dBi and so 
EIRP=500 W pep i.e. 15 dB easyer than OSCAR-13

The power of the next P3E will be 38 watt pep with a similar
antenna.

The mode-S transponder of OSCAR-13 was "hard limited",in
other words no AGC was in it and so the 1,5 W pep
available for all users was proportional to the uplink power.

At epoch time of this list, first originated by W4FJ on 14 
jan 1994 it was very difficult if not impossible to find ready to 
operate preamplifiers/converters antennas/antenna feeds for 2.4 GHz 
and the most part of  the equipments  where necessarily hombrew 
by amateurs.

In addition,at that time about 15 years ago,the best GaAsFET 
available at amateur price showed a noise figure not less than 
1 dB at 2400 MHz

Even though the list of users of OSCAR-13 Mode-S in the early
1990 -1994 is very long.

Please read it

If someting is wrong or missed please let me know
