>> ... My first contact on satellite was 29-Dec-08 via AO-51 and the QSO was
appropriately with Clint Bradford, K6LCS ...
And I definitely remember passing on the "bug" to you, David.
You are obviously infected ... and there is no known antidote.
I'm interested in schedules for QSOs with South American stations on
HO-68. Evening hours and SSB QSOs are preferred. I'm in EL88pg and have
a decent horizon to the south. I'm especially looking for QSOs with the
Central and Southern SA countries.
Please reply direct to ko4ma(a)amsat.org, and forward to any interested
parties or lists.

Hi, I', relatively new to sats and I'm still a bit confused about one
topic and I would like to make this very clear in my mind....
It is regarding "uplink and downlink" mode configured for each satellite.
Ok for FM, SSB and so on.... But...
=> What about NORMAL or REVERSE doppler shift ??
=> When using SSB on transponder, what about when to use USB on uplink
and LSB on downlink ??
=> When using SSB on transponder, what about when to use LSB on uplink
and USB on downlink ??
I'm very confused if my doppler.sqf file is properly configured and a
short explanation would be really appreciated.
I know this is a basic and fundamental question, but I really need to
free my mind with this one.
Thank for your patience guys !
73 and Happy New Year 2010 !!!
I wish you health, health, health and more sats to come !!!

What i really need to do is blast away the NOVA database

I am struggling to keep control of NOVA and the sats I want to chase.
Some keps are missing, and there is alot of other general rubbish in the list of sats.
What is the best way to create a list of "HAM SATS" I can manage ?
Yesterday I uploaded a short (2 minute) video on YouTube
featuring our fantastic new satellite Hope-1 (XW-1, HO-68).
It features the launch, satelite and its various modes
If you listen carefully you may here these callsigns:
M3PQQ, N1AIA, KC9ELU, VA3FM, WA3CZY and I6IBE.
Have fun !
Can anyone out there using HRD help me with this one?
The software tracks in very small increments which sounds really
But can it deal with doppler tracking at higher frequencies?
For example, can it handle accurate tracking at S band from low Earth orbit
and could it extend that capability to 5.8 GHz?
Just trying to figure out the limits.
Heard you on the 08:50 pass, Graham.
You were quite loud and clear at the beginning of the pass but
audio got progressively weaker as the elevation increased.
By about 40 degrees (at my location) the downlink signal was extremely
strong but I could not get in and no one else was heard, just a lot of
snap, crackle and popping noises.
