Just reaching out to see if there are any BB readers who are attending the
Shelby Hamfest this weekend (even if it's Saturday only, out of the three
days). I do have an extra admission ticket which I'll give to you.
Two people who had planned to be there have had schedule conflicts arise,
so right now it is just me manning the table and presenting the forum. I do
have another ham from the Atlanta area who could help, but I'd hate to ask
him to attend if there are others closer by who are attending anyway.
I'm mainly looking for help manning the info table to answer questions
(although if you want to do demonstrations, that would be a plus) as 1) I
would like to step away from time to time and 2) it does get busy at times.
You don't have to be an expert (because I don't claim to be! :-)) on
satellites to be helpful, just have a working knowledge.
I'll be in Shelby Thursday night, and should be around the Fairgrounds most
of the day Friday (there is a little shopping/browsing I'd like to do
myself), but packing up and leaving mid to late afternoon on Saturday
(won't be there Sunday at all).
Please email me if you're interested

Hello, I am trying to collect information about AO-6. The reasons for this is much like AO-7 it (according to what I could find) due to a battery issue. Which means there may be a possibility of it coming back to life eventually like AO-7. (Depending on how it was hooked up internally.)
I was wondering if anyone knew it’s the frequencies used by it or if any documentation about its internals exist. (Like to actually know if it was setup in a way that allowed it to come back.)
M2 Leo pack on standard cross boom, G5400b. ARR pre-amps and MFJ
diplexers, LMR240 and 240UF feedlines.
This thread has most of the details, as well as a screen grab of this
afternoon's attempt. I'm wondering if I am actually getting in just fine,
but the RTL-SDR dongle is just too pathetic to pick it up. But if that's
the case, then it would mean that the other signals are blasting into the
transponder. Did anybody have a qso stomped on this afternoon by "K3RLD
