Club Member Jim Adams AAØCW (Montrose) has worked a new FM satellite AO-92 with a 1 watt Baofeng ht and Arrow handheld antenna in his front yard. Jim made 8 contacts from California to Ohio to Tennessee on the 435.350 MHz uplink and 145.880 MHz downlink. Jim’s activity was recorded by Patrick Stoddard, WD9EWK, in Arizona, along with other satellite activity.
Amateur Radio satellite information can be found on www.amsat.org. Jim says, “FM satellites are easy and fun to work with a regular HT.”
Here’s the video. Patrick Stoddard writes: “Listening to the AO-92 (Fox-1D) satellite’s 145.880 MHz FM downlink from Scottsdale, Arizona (DM43bl), on Friday 26 January 2018, at 1635-1641 UTC.”
