I/m interested in the possibility of using oscars 27, 29, 50, 51, and 52 without using rotors or directional antennas and maybe while mobile. Uplink seems not to be a problem as one can always QRO to a level where the satellite sees an apropriate signal level that is enough but without robing power from other transponder users. On recieve though you still gotta be able to hear 'em to work 'em. Is an eggbeater and a preamp enough to hear decently or is there another (better) way? Is working mobile and/or without directional antennas even practical? what's the best way to do it?
Eric, Go to:
And try the quadrifilars...You wont get much at low ELs, but on a decent pass you will copy...use low loss coax, and good N connectors.
See the folder Antennaevaluation for some testing we've done..
