You can have up to 48 satellites at your finger tips. Go to SET UP then CONFIG. You can load 12 sats in each config. Ourself we have CONFIG 1 and 2 with the analog sats (chinese in 2) in three is the APRS and digital birds. Four is empty.

Hi AMSAT BB,
I have some radios that have been sitting around for several years, and
now am going to sell them. I started poking around ebay and other sites,
and discovered a note about the IC 970 H on this AMSAT BB.
I have one literally in perfect condition (has the 1.2 module), that I
would like to sell. I thought maybe someone could give me a thought on
the best way to go about this.
I am a life member of AMSAT and ARRL, but have never been active on any
of their sites.
I also have an FT-ONE in perfect condition.

The CW beacon from the Pratham satellite was detected here in grid EM79
around 1533 UTC today. I have a turnstile antenna going into an RTL-SDR
and I use SDR# software, so I'm no super station. But I did definitely
pick up some CW on the SDR# trace at the correct time and frequency.
Is the AMSAT Journal archived online somewhere? Even an index of articles? If so, can someone point me to it?
I had to pitch all my past issues for a move, and I'm looking for an article from a couple years back on using the cheap, eBay, USB-SDR sticks.

Satellites to work from EK57 and EK58, (grids difficult to work, to be able
to say that only activate 2 or 3 times in 30 years) the only means of
contact is twitter @xe3dx when to have signal, to be in jungle zone, not to
have telephony and Internet. We heard in the bird.

I have just changed the sat into continuous transponder mode. Plan as normal to switch back to auto mode on Sunday pm (UTC). Apologies for the late switch this weekend.
Please note that our plan for the Holidays is to switch to continuous transponder mode on Wed 22 Dec pm UTC, and revert back to auto transponder switching on Sunday 8 Jan 2017 ppm UTC.
Have FUN with the transponder.
