Barring the unforeseen, I plan on riding down to Rock Hill SC Friday evening with KM4VDM and fulfilling a request from a friend to operate from EM94. I will also be in South Carolina for those that may need it for their Satellite WAS. This will be two passes only, one on each sat.
SO-50 at 0209z (Sat UTC time) and then about twenty minutes after that pass, FO-20 at 0245z (Sat UTC time) Most likely will be in the lower half of the RX passband (145.970 uplink) unless there is QRM or other issues.
I should have access to twitter during the trip, so updates as we go and then lotW upload after returning home a few hours later, paper QSL by request.

Looking to move my two mast mounted preamps into an enclosure. Who knows of a good mast mounted waterproof enclosure that will handle 2 Advanced Recv'r 160 Watt Mast Mounted Amateur Preamp's inside? The preamps are 5" wide and 2-1/2 deep. I could stack them on top of each other or side by side. Let me know if the suggested enclosure will have the hardware to mount to the mast.
Provide me with links to the items.
Newbie on this list, but I may have been here 20 years ago :-). Back in the last millennium I was an Oscar 16 geek and was very active on it. Since it's gone, I have not seen another Sat with similar operating parameters, until FalconSAT-3 came along. Naturally, my old PSK-1T tnc and radios are no good, not to mention my DOS box with PB and PG on it.
So, my question is.......what are people using to operate on Falcon SAT-3?
I have a WIN7 box, a Timewave Navigator, SignaLink USB, FT-817 and TM-D710 radios. Is any of this useful to get going with?
Any ideas, software suggestions etc, appreciated :-)
It is a sad day to hear that another satellite operator
who was very active on the birds has passed away.
Ben DG1EA was often heard working North America. He will
be missed. May he rest in peace.
