Your radio may work for listening and working the ISS, and if it has PL tones it will work for an uplink to SO-50. Maybe a few other things too.

Take a look at the AMSAT web store for "Getting Started on the Amateur Satellites". For a very modest donation, you'll get the best primer around.

Got a callsign yet?
