Re: FD Contacts!



Hi Bob,.

Just wondered what kind of power you were running on your D700 to hit it? I
am planning on using my D7 and a 3 element beam to see if I can hit it with
low power? I am guessing I am going to have to run 5 watts min?

Looking forward to PCSAT coming back as nothing heard on UK passes as yet?

All the best,

Chris, M0DQO-8 Satellites

Didnt even monitor Voice birds.

Waited for ANDE and worked evryone that was on it.  All 3 of them.  Worked
it from my D700 mobile with a small beam stuck out the window.  Simple set
up.  Only change from normal APRS was changing the path to VIA ARISS.  Done.

Also heard PCSAT and got several packets through it too, but I did not have
a beam at the time and so I was not able to decode any packets.

Lottsa birds.  Take your best shot.

Bob, Wb4APR
