I was wondering if someone on the list could tell me whether or not the
Alinco DJ-G7 handi will now work full duplex ? I had one of the first
ones and it would not operate duplex due to receiver desensitization and
I sold it. Now I have been told by another ham that with the new
software download the DJ-G7 should work fine. Is this correct ?
Thanks & 73,
I have a brand-new-in-Diamond-bag X-30A SO-239 connector antenna for your consideration - all proceeds will be forwarded to AMSAT for DARA Doubling.
This antenna cannot get a less-than-5.0 review on eHam.net ...
RF Parts' Web page on the X-30A ...
Covers 2m and 70cm at 3.0db and 5.5db gain, respectively. Wind Rating (no ice) at 135MPH. Excellent performer for portable tripod setups, or scenarios where antenna height or "restrictions" are an issue.
AES and HRO sell these for $69.95. PLUS shipping. POSSIBLY PLUS tax.
First one in the U.S. contiguous 48 to commit (email clint(a)clintbradford.com -or- telephone 909-241-7666) to $50 (PayPal or personal check - whatever) will get it shipped to them. That's twenty bucks off retail, FREE shipping, and no tax.

BOB>> ... eBay helix ... AMSAT will be getting close to $200 with the D.A.R.A matching fund ...
For those not counting - and Bob is not one to gloat - this means that Bob has been responsible for AMSAT receiving darned near $1,000 in the past couple of weeks.
Donations may be painlessly made online at the AMSAT Store - where your $25 donation gets doubled to - yes, $50.
Or sell a spare radio to your local ham club. It will be put to excellent use - you're not using it (that's why it's a spare gathering dust) - and send off the proceeds to AMSAT for DARA-Doubling!
Heck - I am looking at a Diamond X-30 SO-239 NEW IN THE BAG that I really have no use for ... SEE NEXT POST FROM CLINT!
Some days we are seeing very strange behavior in the AO-7. In some orbits can only hear the feedback on the downlink when the satellite is approaching my station at about 30 degrees elevation, before is impossible to hear any signal via AO-7. Using two pre-amplifier, one in the TS 2000x and the other with 0.6 noise with 20 dB gain. During the orbits we transmiting power with of 30 watts. The satellite does not respond. Tried with 15 watts It was then that we hear at certain points on the downlink audio too low. Its best performance is when the satellite is almost 90 degrees from my station. Yet it seems that the satellite is asking for help.
This seems the batteries are not getting enough loads. Or maybe it's excessive use of power by the users of the satellite.
Maybe it's time for the users of AO-7 rethink the best ways to keep QSO through it, such as the use of LOW POWER so that over time the satellite is stabilized.

Thanks to John N4QQ/PJ2, there were a LOT of contacts made this AM on AO-51. He worked us like a champ. His audio sounded great!!
Nice work, John! Thanks for activating the location :)

On June 1 a part of the team ZW8B arrives in Santa Isabel Island. Our intention is to work a greater number of days in the communications via Satellites. Our prediction is that we are still active in the satellites in the early evening of June 1 in the satellites ( AO-51 VO-52, SO-50, FO-29, SO-67 (if active), HO-68 and AO-7 A and B ). It's a good chance to work via satellite, a Brazilian amateur station and a rare grid. We hope to make a grand party of DX , especially for the community of satellite operators.

With what looks like the possible final flight for the Space Shuttle
"Atlantis" and just two more launches for
the others in the fleet, I had the following thought in mind.
Has anyone considered "Special Event " stations with appropriate call
signs being set up to operate
on the amateur bands for both satellites and HF as a tribute.
The "Space Program " together with MIR, ISS and the roles played by the
Shuttle have inspired both young
and old worldwide. Together with amateur radio they have been the key
player and forefront in education
science etc and a thrill to many of the younger generation via our hobby.
I thought that it might be appropriate, if world wide, " Special Event
Stations" could be set up at an appropriate time to commemorate the
It could also serve and pay tribute to the astronauts, cosmonauts and the
many key players and teams
whom have been dedicated to these space projects that now mean so much to
Sadly of course many will now bowing out with dignity as their service will
no longer be required.
The " Special Events " could also further benefit our hobby of amateur
radio - and of course satellite projects
through public awareness and maybe raising donations or support.

Thankyou to everyone who expressed an interest in the "Ebay helix". AMSAT will be getting close to $200 with the D.A.R.A matching fund. Remember, "this is rocket science, and that ain't cheap". Back to my "around to it " pile.

Someone is decoding Oscar 9 telemetry, and I accidentally deleted his
If he is interested, I have a recording of the last Oscar 9 telemetry

There is also a pictorial there of how we did the computation before
