Hi Giulio, AB2VY
Edusat is a "Non amateur satellite" ? ......OK ,but it has received an
experimental license on 435.750 MHz for communicating at no cost
into the "Satellite Amateur Frequencies" without coordination from
It is very strange that Edusat has received an experimental licence
for communications into the Satellite Amateur Band without a
frequency coordination from IARU
It is also very strange that the GAUSS group do not officially published
the operating frequencies of Edusat stating that those frequencies
published via internet are wrong frequencies.
It seems that there is no coordination between our Communication
Autority in Roma and IARU as well between the GAUSS group the
IARU and the Radio Amateur community.
In conclusion dear Giulio Edusat is a satellite not of our interest and
please forget the above box for shoe.

Is anyone using SatPC32 with a Kenwood TS-2000? If so, what is your
Doppler.SQF entry for the transponder. I can not seem to get it to go
into Duplex (Satellite) mode. It goes into Split and, of course, I can
not hear the downlink.
A couple days ago, I noticed that to get a 500 Hz signal for CW-2 (nominally 145.9190 MHz) to decode the BPSK-1000 signal, I had to change the unDoppler-shifted frequency on my USB receiver from 145.918500 MHz to 145.918280 MHz, a change of 220 Hz.
This new value have been consistent over a couple days of careful watching. I don’t believe it to be an error in the keps or clock as it has been true both at the beginning and end of the pass. My receiver has been on for over a month, so unless a component changed value suddenly, ....
Has ARISSat-1 changed, has my radio changed, or does only my hairdresser know for sure?
Hi all ..
I am receiving the CW and TLM ok signal wise ..
I tune in the CW to the mark in the CW / BPSK window..
But I don't ever receive any telemetry ..
Using USB, FT897D ..
I use the rig and computer for BPSK31 all the time ..
Any ideas or suggestions ?? I even watched the You tube
Video that was posted ..
It seems like I am doing it correctly .. but must be missing something ..

My reply is too long to post here ... But some hints and tips for making an effective
satellite presentation are on this page ...
I have a couple excellent "How to make an effective slideshow" articles that will be
added in the next few days, too ...
Sonoma County Radio Amateurs General Meeting

"How to Work the Amateur FM Satellites With Your HT"
Clint Bradford, K6LCS - presenter
AMSAT area coordinator Clint Bradford, K6LCS, will be presenting his
"Working Amateur Satellites With Your HT" session at the September 7,
2011 meeting of the Sonoma County Radio Amateurs. ALL are
welcome to attend.
"The Sonoma County club has been serving their region for more than
SEVENTY years," writes Clint. "I am really looking forward to meeting
Clint's in Southern California - but has prepared a custom slideshow
for the Sonoma County club, which will be displayed - as Skype handles the
session's audio. "I'd much rather be there in person - but this arrangement
has worked quite successfully in the past. We'll have a great time!"
Attendees should visit Clint's Web site ahead of time at ...
... and download the four-page .pdf tutorial. And he welcomes pre-
presentation questions - call him at 909-241-7666 (cell) or send
email to clint(a)clintbradford.com .

ARRL Southwestern Division Convention
Saturday, September 10, 2011 - Noon
Marriott Torrance South Bay: 3635 Fashion Way, Torrance, CA 90503
We have tentative passes of SO-50, ARISSat-1, AO-27, and AO-51 throughout
the day Saturday - Watch for the exact times at the check-in table! Clint will be
presenting his "Working Satellites With Your HT" at Noon in Suites 9-11.
The FM telemetry downlink was initially acquired at 0014 UTC with the end of
the SSTV transmission. The signal was barely audible.
Transmission resumed at 0016 with S9+ strength, no noise, and the following

This morning I had a good pass of ARISSat-1 over Hanoi, Vietnam and decoded
its BPSK-1000 for the first time. According to ARISSatTLM, more than 30
frames were sent to the server out of more than 60 decoded. Manually tuning
the CW signal to keep it within range is fun and it was audible until the
satellite was 1.5 degree under the horizon. Maybe next time I'll try the

Oh, Burns - think of the conversations you would start if you reached into your duffle and whipped out a tape measure beam - and started to un-furl the elements for all to gawk ...
(No - I did not take such on our cruise ... But I sure THOUGHT of it ... (grin))
Although ugly, Kenwood put a lot of money into that tri-band antenna that comes with the TH-F6a. It is one of the better multi-band
