satellites in the past, since it can be set up for many
different configurations. Sometimes, two different
configurations can be operated at the same time (i.e.,
2m/70cm FM repeater with 2m/70cm 9600bps digital, or
2m/70cm FM repeater with 23cm/70cm FM repeater). The AO-51
configuration for next week, with 2 FM repeaters, has been
used a few times in the recent past including for the ARRL
Field Day in late June.
I am a member of AMSAT's AO-51 Operations Group, which makes
the monthly schedules for this satellite:
and we receive e-mails from radio amateurs around the world
at our ao51-modes @ amsat.org (remove spaces around the @
sign) e-mail address. Some request a configuration for an
event like JOTA, Field Day, or a local hamfest. Others want
to try something out at their station and would like one of
the less-common configurations turned on.
If you are set up to work these satellites, give it a try
and post your results. Also, if you could e-mail the
ao51-modes address with the same information, we would
appreciate it. We use these sorts of comments to know if a
particular configuration is popular, meriting its use in the
future. If you'd like to discuss details on setting up for
working this satellite (and others), please e-mail me directly
and we can take care of that. Many 2m/70cm handheld and mobile
radios are able to be used with the FM satellites.
Good luck, and 73!
