Hi All,

I've recently become interested again in working some of the satellites 
that are still operational.  Back when I was active 4-5 years ago I was 
working FM only and now want to get back into it and try FO-29 and AO-7 
as well.  I purchased a SDRPlay with the hopes of using it as the 
downlink receive and already have a Yaesu FT-857 (that I'll set to low 
power) or a cheap Chinese HT as my uplink depending on the satellite.  
Are there any others out there who use the SDRPlay for this purpose?  I 
know Patrick (WD9EWK) has used one before and I have been corresponding 
with him via e-mail but was just curious if there were any others out 
there that do as well.
