Group Description

We're discussing getting hams up and running on an FM bird or two for their first times with low power ... with equipment most hams already own!

This is the support message group for the "Work the FM Ham Satellites" Web site. On that site you will find complete, CURRENT information on working the "easy" FM birds with low power, including ...

-a four-page tutorial to get you up and working an FM sat this week

-frequency chart in that tutorial for SO-50

-CURRENT frequency chart for FOX-1A / AO-85 and the ISS

-live maps indicating the current positions of the easy sats

-antenna improvements and easy-to-build antenna projects

-commercial - and some absolutely free! - satellite tracking programs and sources

... and much more. That's http://www.work-sat.com !

I'd like message topics here to include equipment recommendations, software solutions, on-the-air operations ... from your first-hand experiences - and beyond! And for those of you who have not yet "worked a bird," I hope you will find the group helpful!

PLEASE TRIM/EDIT YOUR REPLIES! Have a product or service that may benefit the group? Or selling a satellite-related piece of gear? Privately send me email before posting. THANK YOU!

So ... join the group and get started. Participate, ask any question, and help the group grow into a great messagebase of valuable information!
