Hello all and Happy New Year,
I hate to sound like such a Newbie, but I know how hard it was figuring 
out some of the nuances of FM and SSB voice birds with no experience in 
Sats. Asking for help would have cut down my learning cure immensely. 
The learning curve can be tough when doing something new with the 
assistance of old data. So rather than going through that again, I am 
going to ask for help. I have just rewired my old Kantronics all mode 
TNC to my FT-847 and have been watching some local APRS data packets. I 
think I am ready to see what is available on Sats. What are the Sats 
that I can hear and TX to in the 2m/440 freqs that, are easy to hit with 
minimum antenna equipment?
